We had the honor of hearing from Gabi O'Rourke, the Youth Pastor at River Valley Church, about how to create culture in whatever industry you are in. She shares that ministry and the marketplace are not that different - each go through similar struggles, opportunities, and dynamics. Some of her min points are: culture is CAUGHT, not taught. You culture needs to be CLEAR, to those around you and those you are trying to influence (clients). Create your core values, share them with others, and live them out. Healthy culture helps you accomplish your vision. Creating culture also takes COURAGE.

How to Find Inspiration with Preston Palmer
Have you ever found yourself lethargic, tired, uninspired and lacking all feelings of genius or inspiration? Do you often feel like you are simply drifting through life rather than creating something meaningful and beautiful for yourself and others? Have you ever had a brilliant idea that you sat on it, then sometime in the future went back to carry it out that idea and the inspiration you originally had for it was no longer there? Or WORSE. Have you ever had a genius, inspired idea that you didn't’ act on and weeks, months or years later someone created or completed your idea almost exactly leaving you saying, HEY! That was MY idea!? If any of this seems familiar to you, I promise you aren’t alone.
From here we will move forward into a practical, tangible way to harness your inner genius and begin to live a truly inspired and meaningful life.
This teaching is an absolute must for any artist or person who feels like inspiration has been just out of reach. You will leave thinking differently about inspiration and have the tools to live a truly inspired life.
