What I learned from Ed Young

30 07 2007

b-host-eym.jpgI had the wonderful opportunity to meet one of my spiritual heros at our generation conference. I was blown away by his humility and by how personable he was. It is very humbling for a Pastor who has 20,000 people in his church to not only listen to you but ask you questions to get your perspective on things.

What did i learn from Ed Young?

He truly has a passion for reaching people who are far from God.

He truly cares about people.

He is what he preaches. He exudes Authenticity.

He says that he loves asking questions and he really does ask a lot of questions. He never stops learning, I love that.

He has a way of talking the conversation and using it to find out more about you.

He is 100% passionate about the local church.

He lives the theme of our conference. He really does Love God and Love others.

Couldn’t agree with you more Sam! After you’ve had a good meal the memory doesn’t just remain with you but the taste as well. Meeting Ed is a little like that… He’s one of those guys that you want to become like – you want ask questions, engage with people and love God more… That’s a great quality.
