Amazing Snippets of Wisdom from Casey

Meditate on these Guest Quotes to see the useful wisdom that might come from God’s voice and resonate with your heart and be implemented today on your journey.

  1. My passion is to not see people disconnect from the church because things have gone wrong.
  2. So I think, in general, the church for the last several decades maybe has turned inward in looking at organization, in looking at programs, in looking at style and all that sort of thing and these have their place but they have sort of lost their way of trying to connect people with their mission in life.

Key Points Discussed:

  • The backstory of Casey’s coming to faith and passion to help people grow their faith
  • The Minister’s Toolbox podcast
  • Causes people are leaving churches
  • Need to frequently ask church and clients members for feedback
  • What do when church your experience turns bad.

Epiphany or Miracle Story   

  • At 17 years of age Casey asks Christ to reveal Himself

Take-Away Wisdom that leads to action today:  

  • Ask yourself and God “Why is the world going to be different because I am here?” Seek God’s help to hear and understand the answer and take action.
