Episode 424: Raising Up and Developing Leaders

In Episode 424 of the NewChurches Q&A Podcast, Daniel and Todd discuss raising up apprentices and inviting them into your leadership pipeline.

“What happens when you are forming small groups on your launch team during your church plant and you just don’t have strong enough leaders to break a group of 30 into two groups of 12-14? How would you approach that kind of leadership development within a desire to see multiplication?”

In This Episode, You’ll Discover:

  • How to invite people into your leadership pipeline
  • The tension of breaking up a small group
