“What are you doing to raise the next generation of leaders in the church?”
This is the question that Mark Dever put to me least year when I was over in Washington. He said that all pastors should be working hard at raising the next generation of leaders of the church because if we don’t who will?
So what is your church doing to raise the next generation of leaders? Are you doing anything at all?
This month I read a book called The Leadership Pipeline by Ram Charan, Stephen Drotter and James Noel. In the book they talk about how there is a leadership drought in corporate America. That business leaders havent developed their people to be skilled at the different levels of leadership required of them, as they go up through the corporate ranks. What companies need is a leadership pipeline which is a strategy for developing leaders from the ground level right through corporate management to CEO.
This had me thinking about Resolved and how we are doing with leadership development and whether we should have a leadership pipeline. I think we should but what stages would be in it?
What leadership programs have you been in? What do you think?
What do the leaders of the church need to be trained in?
How should churches train the next generation of leaders in the church?
