"God, Rock The Summit"

Read as Single PagePage 2 of 2

Catherine, too, expects the best of the men she works with. "I treat the men like gentlemen," she says, "and I expect them to act like gentlemen. And in the course of the program, I watch them become gentlemen."

These two women are also convinced that their lives are richer for the sacrifices they've made for their ministries. Catherine put it this way: "I can't imagine what I'd be missing out on if I were not following in obedience." It sounds a little like Jesus' words: whoever would find their life must lose it.

The leadership principles that drive Wendy and Catherine are simple: (1) Believe in what you're doing, (2) Do it.

I was struck, in the midst of such a resource-rich environment, by how much can be done without a budget, a building, or exorbitant overhead by a few faithful people who do what God has called them to do. I hope the 100,000 pastors attending the Summit worldwide will learn what I learned from these two women: Believe in what you're doing. Do it. Trust God for the harvest.
