Perry, I appreciate everything you do, but here are two few specific things that make me super-proud to serve with you.
- VISION I appreciate your God-inspired vision and your unwillingness to allow anyone or anything to compromise it. From the day you came to our house and sat on our crappy, worn-out blue living room couch to tell us that you were called to plant a church to now when there are nearly 10,000 people attending every weekend, you have never allowed the vision to be compromised.
- PERSONAL GROWTH You have continued to challenge yourself to grow as a husband, leader, and a father. Even now, when you could sit back and say, "We are running 10,000 people. That's pretty good. Let's sit back a little and rest." Instead, I still see you ravenously taking notes in that 2-pt script font that you write in and filling the entire page up with notes. You meet with mentors. You go to conferences. You read books. You read blogs. And more than all of these other ways of growing, you read the Bible and pray and allow God to guide you.
I am proud to say, "Perry Noble is my pastor, leader, and friend."
