#SYMC Speaker Notes: Jon Acuff

  • Jon Acuff runs a well known blog, StuffChristiansLike.net
  • So excited I got to present with him this weekend!
  • He started out with some "Jesus Jukes" satire from his blog.
  • Why do we allow 1 negative comment to ruin 1,000 compliments? (I personally did that this weekend -- ugh!)
  • Who is attacking your ministry?
  • Who doesn't like you? (We can normally think of 'that' person right away)
  • Why do we react to vanity? (Gave example of Twitter spam: "Did you see the awful things said about you in this video???")
  • Whatever you do that is 90% perfect and is shared changes lives...
  • Many times when we give 100% and don't share it goes nowhere.
  • The drive to be a Christian celebrity is the worst drug.
  • God is not surprised by the ministry you are doing now (no matter how large or how small it may be)
  • God wants us to know that He knows our name... THERE'S YOUR FAME!
  • We believe that if people find out who we are, they will only abandon us.
  • What is fear afraid of?
  • Do you listen to the voice of comparison?
  • Never compare your beginning to someone else's middle. (I love that!) For instance, don't compare your ministry (especially if you are only 2 years deep into ministry... to someone who has done ministry for 20 years)
  • What are your voices saying?
  • Sometimes when God is quiet we think we have failed!
  • Did you notice in the story of the prodigal son that the father didn't say one word to the son who returned home? He only called for a celebration! We need more celebration.
  • The work YOU are doing is critical!
  • Listen to the one, true voice -- the voice of God!
This post contains my notes from the general session at the Simply Youth Ministry Conference.
