Experience Speaks: Miles McPherson

Miles McPherson: “There’s too much I don’t know and will never know, but I know the one who does.”

In our Experience Speaks series, Outreach 100 pastors share what they’ve learned about themselves, the church and the definition of success.

The Rock Church in San Diego, California

ON THE CHURCH

I’ve learned that the church produces infinitely more fruit than I will ever see or imagine. I am learning to faithfully sow into what is in front of me and trust that the Holy Spirit is multiplying the fruit 60-, 80-, 100-fold.

ON MYSELF

I’ve learned that the devil has very deceptive ways of distracting [my] use of time and energy. Therefore, I am focusing on putting more passion into fewer projects versus spreading myself over many projects.

ON SUCCESS

Success is making sure that every night when I put my head on my pillow, God, not the devil says, “Well done good and faithful servant.”

BEST ADVICE I EVER RECEIVED

The best advice I received that is so simple and profound is: Abide in the presence of God and trust him. There’s too much I don’t know and will never know, but I know the one who does.
