#PAOCGENCONF2010 – Wayne Cordeiro

This entry is part 3 of 7 in the series PAOC General Conference 2010
Dr. Wayne Cordeiro is senior pastor of New Hope Christian Fellowship in Honolulu, Hawaii.  I was really looking forward to hearing his message – and I was not disappointed!   Remember,  for the first few posts in this series I’m just posting the raw notes – in the last post of this series I will summarize my thoughts on everything I heard/experienced at the General Conference this year. Here are the notes I took from that night.

  • “There is something about vibrant Christians when they are brand new.”
  • 1500 ministers are leaving ministry every month.  What is being to replace those who leave?
  • the whole story of the Old Testament is passing the baton of faith contextually from one generation to the next.
  • remember God has chosen people and placed them in the times where they live.
  • races (relay) are won or lost in the passing of the baton.
  • when you are passing the baton – for a season you need to run together.
  • It just takes a moment to pass the baton but it takes 5 to 7 years to pass the heart of that baton
  • In the end we take the victory lap together
  • What would it have been like if King Saul wasn’t intimidated by David?
  • God said to David your greatest ministry will be through the next generation.
  • Everyone has the dream of what they can be for God
  • What are you going to do with your dream?
  • Potential is everything you could do but haven’t done yet.
  • Wayne’s motto “die empty”
  • Wayne had said to him by a teacher “the Kingdom of God has been waiting for you”
  • Will you be a dream releaser? (that teacher was a dream releaser)
  • Dream releasers believe in others sometimes more than they believe in themselves.
  • God gave you authority to encourage others in their dreams and to “tap on the cages” (illustration of Wayne letting a bird go free out of a cage when young in Japan)
  • Don’t just love people, love the potential that lies within people.
  • 2 Corinthians 13:10 – authority has been given to build up not tear down.
  • Use your authority correctly to build up!
