Designed to Lead: The Church and Leadership Development


It’s a sad fact that most churches simply exist. For one reason or another, they do not develop leaders intentionally and consistently. When leaders emerge from some churches, it is often by accident. From the beginning of time, God has designed His people to lead, whether that is in the home, marketplace, community or in the church. Authors Eric Geiger and Kevin Peck contend that churches which regular produce leaders demonstrate a strong conviction to develop leaders, a healthy culture for leadership development, and helpful constructs to systematically and intentionally build leaders. The local church must follow all three of these essentials to to form leaders.
