Building Leaders provides real-life examples of ways churches can unleash their true ministry potential by training staff members and laypeople to lead. With step-by-step instructions that can be applied to any church or parachurch ministry, Building Leaders shows readers how to:
- empower, not just train, leaders
- overcome obstacles to developing leaders
- identify emerging leaders
- use biblical models for training leaders
- form a leadership training program to fit any size or budget
Packed with surveys, discussion questions, and a leadership development guide, Building Leaders will encourage leaders to "duplicate themselves" in order to see their ministry grow. It is a perfect resource for ministry students, church leaders, and pastors.
