i’m TICKED!

I just read about Seth Godin’s MBA program. It was free. It was extremely selective. It was all about growth.

WHY THE HECK DON’T ALL COLLEGES/SCHOOLS/MBA PROGRAMS opporate like this?

I was frustrated as heck at taylor university. I’m not sure about any other majors, but i know my BA in Christian Educational Ministries was essentially a $30k a year book club. We simply read a ton of different books – most of which could be found on the racks of your typical Christian book store.

Why was/is there no emphasis on simply “doing” ministry? Why not learn via success and failure in a semi-controlled environment?

WHY? WHY? WHY? WHY?

There are many of you who have summer interns or an opportunity to teach others. Newsflash, reading books insn’t the secret to success (though it ought to be asssumed). Instead, focus on doing, evaluating, and doing again.

This makes me think about teaching students to practice their faith…. More to come.
