- De-sire: Why your desires are “of your Father”
- Dubb’s advice on following desires: position yourself correctly and focus on your desire
- Dubb’s dream is to champion people and give them permission to follow their dreams.
- Dubb’s biggest strength? “The ability to connect with anybody and build trust quickly.”
- Dubb’s biggest weakness within his gifting? “Being overextended and overcommitted. Not knowing when to say NO.”
- The biggest thing God is stirring in Dubb is around the issue of Fatherhood: what it looks like and why it’s a huge need in our nation.
- How does Dubb share the gospel in everyday life? “I look for the greatness of God in people and pull it out and show it to them. Then they want to know more. I think the difference is that we believe in people unconditionally and champion them.”
- A daily habit that contributes to Dubb’s solid walk with Jesus? “The pursuit of a relationship with the Holy Spirit, which is the most misunderstood aspect of faith.”
- A recent impactful book? The Political Spirit by Faisal Malick
- If you could go back to a younger you, what age would you choose and what advice would you give? “I would go to the 16-year-old Dubb. I would say listen to what God is speaking to you and not to the religious spirit in the church that tries to tell you what’s right and wrong and tries to put you in a box.”
- Dubb’s parting advice: “Invest in yourself. People don’t usually see their worth. Get someone on your side that believes in you and will champion you.”
