I would add this as well: You are not John Piper, Rick Warren, Bill Hybels, or Mark Driscoll. Be yourself. Those men lead the types of ministries they do because of primarily WHO they are, not WHAT they do. Most people think the WHAT or HOW is most important. "Just tell me WHAT to do and HOW to do it!"
But WHO is way more important. Be WHO you are first and the rest will work itself out. It's certainly important to learn from others but don't copy. The principle is more important than the practice. The practice will be unique to you.
But this implies faith, prayer, and thinking hard. It's way easier to plug and play. But it won't last.
