Just went to Alex Montoya's seminar at the Shepherd's Conference on Preaching with Passion. Man am I convicted. Here are some quotes that I typed out. (Many of them have abbreviations in them as I tried to type out what he said word for word.)

A holy minister is an awesome weapon in the hand of God (Robert Murray McCheyne)

“If it’s human I will try to convert it” -- Alex Montoya.

The power (=unction) doesn’t begin in the pulpit, it begins in your closet, in your daily living; when you’re on your knees playing w/ your kids; talking w/ your wife; living for God and having God control your life.

When we are convinced of God’s Word, we won’t LACK passion.

The bible is a biblia, a book, and it has an answer to every ailment in the human life.

“The pastor needs to be the sharpest knife in the drawer.” -- Montoya.

You can never be overprepared for God’s ministry.

“You’re the chef, as you’re cooking, you’re slurping and eating along the way, so when you deliver the goods, you’ve already eaten.” -- Montoya

Preach & teach a sermon that’ll keep you awake on Saturday night.

Preach a sermon that oozes out of your heart.

“To love to preach is one thing, but to love those to whom we preach is quite another (Lloyd Jones)

Preach with a moist eye because of your love for your people.

Be the best preacher possible. Be the expert on the BIble in your Church.

“preachers must become GOSPEL maniacs. Preacher must be captivated and REcaptivated by the LORD Jeesus Christ”

Don’t be a carcass in the pulpit” -- Montoya.

When the pulpit dies the pew dies.

My pеrsоnal view based on our top seаrch
еngine poѕitiοn expeгience is that a small number of maintenance
is needeԁ to meet the challengеs of maintаinіng a ωеll

And finаlly, you neeԁ to completе bеforе
you can hire one that cаn match up to your site, develop
