My Favorite Andy Stanley Quotes

Below is a list of my favorite Andy Stanley quotes. Mr. Stanley is the founding pastor of Northpoint Community Church in Alpharetta, GA.

Inconsistency between what a leader says and what a leader does inflicts a mortal wound on a leaders credibility.

Devoting a little of yourself to everything means committing a great deal of yourself to nothing.

Once you step outside of your zone, don’t attempt to lead.

The leader is the one who has the courage to act on what he sees.

The most significant visions are not cast by great orators from a stage. They are cast at the bedsides of our children. The greatest visioncasting opportunities happen between the hours of 7:30 and 9:30 PM Monday through Sunday. In these closing hours of the day we have a unique opportunity to plant the seeds of what could be and what should be. Take every opportunity you get.

Past boldness is no assurance of future boldness. Boldness demands continual reliance on God's spirit.

To become a leader worth following, you must give time and attention to the inner man. To leave a legacy that goes beyond accomplishment alone, a leader must devote himself to matters of the heart.

Talent and determination determine your potential; character determines your legacy.

Striving for balance forces a leader to invest time and energy in aspects of leadership where he will never succeed. It is not realistic to strive for balance within the sphere of our personal leadership abilities.

Leaders are always careful. They are careful because they genuinely care for those who have chosen to follow.

Those leaders who refuse to listen will soon find themselves surrounded by people with nothing to say.

Character is not made in crisis; it is only exhibited.
