Shareable Mike Patin Quotes

  • "You can't give what you don't have"
  • "If my ministry is not flowing out of my relationship with God, then it's not good ministry. If ministry is the only way I'm sustaining and nurturing my relationship with God, then I get in trouble"
  • "Make time to slow down the clock and give God the opportunity. Too often I have gone into retreat with expectations that were unfair and I couldn't just be with it for God."
  • Do not wait for community to be created for you. Create an intentional support community for yourself."
  • "I can fool myself on intentionality unless I have an accountability 'somebody'."
