Why do some church plants fail? (12)

Constantly raise up leaders

Why do some church plants fail? I don’t know. But I do know that I’ve had to constantly raise up leaders.

Even if you only have 10 people, see everyone as a leader. There is potential in everyone. Some may learn and progress quicker than others. But everyone can lead. Some may not measure up to the calibre of others but everyone can lead at their own level.

For every person you raise up as a leader, you will end up gaining at least another ten people. This is not some sort of magic, but a reality of leadership. When people are trained, and raised up to leadership at any level, they will begin to influence others and many more will be impacted.

I realize that my impact and potential is limited. But as I continue to develop leaders, my limited potential becomes limitless. The possibilities are endless. Leadership development is not an option, it is a necessity.
