Last week I was blessed with the opportunity to attend the All Access 2010 Pastors Conference in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. This conference was put on by the Association of Related Churches (ARC). I had the priviledge to meet and connect with other pastors from all over the country.

I was also able to listen to some of the best Christian leaders and communicators on this planet, such as Brian Houston, Craig Groeschel, Dino Rizzo, Chris Hodges, Robert Morris, John Maxwell, and more.

Here are some of the best quotes that spoke to my heart during the conference…
