Church isn’t built on how many workers we employ but how we facilitate the development of leaders.
It’s the tougher path and will at times be messy. However, its potential is enormous and rewarding.
Paul modeled this with Timothy. “What you heard from me, keep as a pattern of sound teaching, with faith and love in Christ Jesus.” 2 Timothy 1:13
Build on a pattern of leadership. It starts with the leader passing on what she knows. (Remember, most teaching is “caught”!)
The next chapter takes the pattern to another level. “And the things you have heard me saying the presence of many witnesses entrust to reliable men who will also be qualified to teach others.” 2 Timothy 2:2
Here we see the pattern in operation. From Paul to Timothy; from Timothy to others; from others…
Can you see it? Go live it.
