A Simple Process for Developing Missional Leaders

The church has historically required people to be at a very high level of education and proven experience before they are released to lead others… or even be a central part of disciple-making. We’ll never see a gospel movement of multiplication this way!

This week on the Lifeschool Podcast, we’ll give you a simple process for developing missional leaders. You can use this in everything you do, with all the disciples in your life, and you’ll be on a path of natural and reproducible leadership development.

Leadership development is just discipleship further up the slope, walking with people longer and deeper into the ways of Jesus and the kingdom of God. Making mature disciples who lead others will include more experience, time and greater trust must be built in both directions.

In This Episode You’ll Learn:

  • Why there always seems to be a “leadership crisis” in so many churches.
  • How leadership development precedes the multiplication of disciples, communities, and churches.
  • How any knowledge, skill, or spiritual practice can be passed on through this process.
  • Why making everything simple and reproducible is key to multiplying leaders.

From this episode:

“Eventually you will need to leave these leaders alone to lead in your community or send them off to multiply the very skills and aspects of this missionary life that you have equipped them in. This step is crucial to their maturity and the expansion of the Kingdom.”
