Culture Clash

C3 Conference 2018 App Session

Create a whatever-it-takes culture with Dr. Ben Young, Mac Richard, and Brad White

The best way to create a can-do culture is to have can-do people on your team.

How to Build a Can-Do Team

There is no formula for hiring and knowing if they are can-do until you have them on the team.

Good candidates for your team: people who have played high school sports.

Busy people get things done. Non busy people are free for a reason.

Look for people who walk with God.

The Priority of Reaching

Evangelism is the key.
You won’t attract passionate evangelistic people unless you are! Vision trumps everything!

2 Ways to Build Vision into your team:

  1. Weekly leadership meeting
  2. Annual Advance Weekend!

People don’t take hints well. be specific with your ask.
You cultivate what you tolerate.
Hope is not a strategy.
You can pay now or pay later.
Don’t live in fantasy land. Be relentless for the truth.

Cole Phillips

I'm a Connector, linking people with God and with others to experience the kind of life God has planned for them. I am the founding and Lead Pastor of THE CONNECTION CHURCH in Buda, Texas. I previously served in churches around the state as youth pastor and as pastor before moving to Kyle in the Spring of 2004. I love to lead people to connect with God and those around them and thrive on changed lives. I earned a doctorate in missions and evangelism with an emphasis on church growth. My heart beats for helping people connect with God and connect with others in an authentic community of faith. I love listening to and making music. I also enjoy hanging out with my family. Pam and I have been married since 1991 and we have two daughters, Makenzie and Bethanie. We are planting our lives in Hays County and allowing God to build a great church through us.
