Mentoring for Kingdom Potential

Like towering trees in a dense forest, leaders in Jesus’ time were egocentric, oppressive, and in charge. They shut out much needed light for emerging leaders. Perhaps this is why Jesus never described His disciples as leaders. He didn’t want future leaders of His church to absorb those leadership values. The church’s healthy beginning was linked to Jesus’ sacrificial resolve to lead by focusing on His followers’ highest potential. Rick uses examples from the beginning of his ministry as a pastor to illustrate how experienced Christians can have a tremendous impact on younger, less mature Christians through mentoring.

The church needs leaders who don't write and speak and teach for a living to step up and put some action to their faith.
