(From our series “The Best or Worst Advice I’ve Ever Received.”)

Best advice: Wess Stafford, then president of Compassion International, was mentoring me on how to disciple my own children. He advised, “Give your children experiences, not things.”

Worst advice: One of my Bible college professors advised, “Never be close friends with people in the church you lead.”

Greg Nettle serves as president with Stadia, Irvine, California.
