We must have an “exit strategy.”

Before you begin, you better know how you want to end.

Ask yourself, “What objective are you after?”

The big difference in the model of ministry: Doing ministry vs. Developing others.

Jesus’s model: developing his disciples.

Our model: doing the work of ministry.

‘Doing’ is done alone – ‘developing’ involves others.

The Priority of Leadership Development

Todd Adkins at LifeWay Leadership talks about the 4 Altars … “Why won’t we give our ministry to others?”


The Pattern of Biblical Discipleship and Leadership Development.

The biblical model of Discipleship is Matthew 28:19-20, “Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”

Daniel Im, the author of “No Silver Bullets,” says, “discipleship is a direction, not a destination.”

The biblical model of Leadership Development is 2 Timothy 2:2
