Where Did Your Church Leaders Come From?
Not too long ago, when I was in another country, I met with a local pastor and the elders of the church. The thing that captured my attention was that the pastor had led all these men to Christ, discipled them, and trained them to be church leaders. I have to admit that I don’t know of a pastor in America that has done that.
The issue is not so much that this needs to be true of every church, but a pastor should be involved in all three of these: evangelism, discipleship and leadership development. If there aren’t any trained leaders in your church, it doesn’t have to be that way a decade from now; but it will take focused effort on the part of the pastor to make that happen.
