8 Things Learned from G.A. Mangunby Carlton Coon
Perhaps without him realizing it G.A. Mangun was influencing the following generation in an "outsized" way. I wish I had paid more attention and had more time. There is so much more I could have learned. A few things I gained from this man of evangelism and prayer.
- Get the message - stay on the message!
- Don't let negative things affect your worship or your leadership.
- Reaching out to sinners is more important than almost anything else.
- God's work doesn't have to be vanilla.
- Plan to see people won EVERY week. Preach in a way that it happens!
- Don't let a small crowd deter you from being God's man in that moment.
- The local church you lead is the main thing.
- Love the saints. . . love people
