The churches and ministries I’ve been part of over the last two decades have either had an earnest intentionality about developing and releasing new leaders (almost to the point of being obnoxious about it) along with a tested plan for actually doing so… or, they’ve ceased to exist.
Go great commission, go 2 Timothy 2:2, but wherever you look this disciple making thing has turning consumers into producers, eavesdroppers to evangelists, audiences into apostles baked right into it.
Jesus poured himself relentlessly into near-future leaders.
So, disciple, how are you developing leaders? And how’s it going?
