Blog Suggestion: Big Is The New Small


I connected with the blog: Big Is The New Small about a year ago through an interview with Scott Williams on RickWSmith.com.  After hearing the interview, I quickly began following Scott on Twitter (he's very BIG on twitter) and reading his blog.  Scott's a campus pastor for LifeChurch.tv in Northwest Oklahoma City and a bold visionary with a passionate heart.  On my previous blog, I posted a video of Scott from The Nines conference with his message: Church Diversity Sucks.  Anyways, if you are not already aware of Scott Williams and Big Is The New Small you need to be!  Here's what you need to know about his blog:

The Bigger more successful an organization or ministry becomes, the Smaller and more laser focused the vision must become.

The Bigger a persons belly becomes, in order to loose weight the Smaller their portions have to become.

The Bigger the lottery amount, the Smaller the chances of winning.

The Bigger a leader becomes the Smaller the number of individuals they can directly disciple (Think about it, Jesus only had 12).

Watch The Orange Conference Live tomorrow

I just found out that the Orange Conference will be livestreaming the main sessions this year for FREE!!!  If you're not already familiar with the Orange Conference that begins tonight, you need to get familiar quickly.  You can go to www.theorangeconference.com and find out all about it.  They have an incredible lineup of speakers including Doug Fields, Mark Batterson, Donald Miller, Reggie Joiner, Perry Noble, and Rev Run!  That's right, the Rev Run from Run's house!  Also, two of my friends: Rick Smith (Thursday 1:10pm) and Scott Austin (Friday at 11:00am) will be speaking at the conference on the main stage.  I love that so many of these conferences are now broadcasting live for everyone to see and experience!  I hope you will join me in watching some or all of this conference live over the next couple of days.
