Here’s all of the top quotes and key notes you don’t want to forget from Darrel Girardier’s talk at That Church Conference.

  • Don’t let your social media be like a plane where it takes off and lands without intersecting anything.
  • Give people what they need, not what they want.
  • When you feel like you’re the only one who can do it, you begin to feel like a superhero.
  • Constantly playing superhero leads to burnout.
  • Take yourself out of the equation and ask yourself “how is the task going to get done?” @dgirardier #ThatCC @ThatChurchConf
  • At the end of the day, you are playing a perception game.
  • Salemanship is part of the job.
  • Your scorecard is one of the following: attendance, building, cash. (That’s not necessarily a stated reality though). To figure out what the scorecard is, see what’s being celebrated in your church worship service.
  • “Your Ministry Scorecard: What’s being celebrated? How are we doing? Are we doing what we hope we’d be doing?” @dgirardier #ThatCC
  • Don’t write goals. Write mission and vision.
  • Every piece of content has to be aligned the mission and vision of your church. Your mission and vision is not ‘go and make disciples;’ it’s what makes you unique in your area.
  • Are you more in love with social media and church communications than the Bride of Christ?
  • We understand that the church is not based upon the next building we create but rather the next relationship we create.
