Hello! I am Greg Cole and I want to welcome you to my world - ColeWorld. I assume that you landed here for a reason - that you are a follower of Jesus Christ who desires to live a dynamic and fruitful life that impacts others. You believe that are called by Christ to influence others... to make an impact. You believe that you are called to minister in His name, in His presence, in His power, serving His purpose (Eph. 2:9, Jn 15:5). That kind of life, however, just doesn't happen. It requires intentionality. So, if you are ready to be intentional in impacting and influencing other, keep reading.
So, why another Christian blog? My purpose for this website is simple. I want to help you be the best influencer and impactor that you can be - in your family, in your church, in your workplace,and in your community. Here you will find practical tips and ideas for becoming a better Christian. Practical tools to manage your time, deal with conflict and difficult people, supervising people (paid and volunteer), developing and casting vision, communicating more effectively, dealing with personality differences, and much, much more. My desire is to help you do what matters most in being the person God has called you to be, no matter where that might be.
