Key Quotes from Joel McGill
“This idea of finish lines really came out of the idea that we can finish it, that in our lifetime we could finish this call that this gospel will be preached to the ends of the earth to every nation.”
“I think the idea of coming together around a common purpose, a common outcome…that’s more dynamic unity than trying to get everyone to like one another.”
“When we’re fighting a war for the souls of people that we’re trying to reach, there’s tremendous relationship and depth of friendship that is found in that context, and I think that is something that we’ve experienced, where we’ve seen leaders come together that theologically are never going to come together.”
“You’re never going to do anything great for God without prayer.”
“We want to make sure everybody’s shown God’s love in a practical way.”
“What we saw was just an exponential engagement of these unreached, unengaged people groups.”
“Unreached people groups are now being reached at an unprecedented rate. Probably in the last 2,000 years, there are more being reached, year upon year, than ever before.”
“In our lifetime, we could say that this gospel has been preached to every ethnos.”
