Overview

Most churches merely exist.

Many churches do not develop leaders intentionally and consistently. When leaders emerge from some churches, it is often by accident. Something is missing. Something is off.

Authors Eric Geiger (author of bestselling Simple Church and Creature of the Word) and Kevin Peck argue that churches that consistently produce leaders have a strong conviction to develop leaders, a healthy culture for leadership development, and helpful constructs to systematically and intentionally build leaders. All three are essential for leaders to be formed through the ministry of a local church.

From the first recordings of history God has made it clear that He has designed creation to be led by His covenant people. More than that, He has decided what His people are to do with that leadership. Whether you are called to lead your home, in the marketplace, in God’s church, or in your community, if you are called by God you are called to lead others to worship the glory of God in Jesus Christ.

God has designed His people to lead.

Top Highlights

“Culture is the shared beliefs and values that drive the behavior of a group of people” (source)

“If people are not reminded of their identity, they will be burdened with lists of tasks and responsibilities without their hearts being refreshed and renewed by the Lord who loves them.” (source)

“It is one thing to say, ‘There is a significant relationship between equipping believers and the health of a church,’ and quite another to say, ‘Equipping people makes a church healthy.’ The former statement positions ‘equipping believers’ as one of many things that is present in healthy churches, as one of the observable characteristics in a healthy church. The latter statement boldly claims, ‘If you will equip believers, you will have a healthy church.’” (source)

“Conviction is a God-initiated passion that fuels a leader and church” (source)

“The goal of the pipeline is development, not progression.” (source)

    God chose humankind to SERVE His creation by taking responsibility. Leadership is not a term often used in the Scriptures. Jesus came to serve. Servanthood is the big thing, not leadership!!!
