Leadership Development for Church Growth

Every church in the world needs leaders who follow the way of Jesus. People with a vision for His mission, for church growth and to multiply discipleship-focused leaders.

As we work with churches to multiply disciples we also work to see leaders multiplied for these churches.

As Global Disciples, we see leadership development as absolutely essential to ensure that these new churches grow into healthy fellowships.

Thomas’s Leadership Development

Thomas directs a leadership development program in Zimbabwe, through his local church. They meet for about an hour and a half on Sunday afternoons. Some of the group comes from the other side of town. It’s a high-density area about 10 kilometers away.

Last year, as they met together and studied what it means to be a leader in the model of Jesus. Thomas said, “God did something in the hearts of these leaders. They began to feel God’s call to be leaders that ‘make things happen.’”

And part of making things happen was to plant a new church, in that heavily populated area of the city.

This new church is now led by three men from the leadership training, with an attendance of more than 30 people. With their location, and the vision to “make things happen” for the Kingdom, these leaders are anticipating much greater growth in the future.

Thomas said, “One of my hopes and prayers for our program is that we see leaders emerging who can take responsibility for our churches.”

The Importance of Planting Churches

And he talked about Matthew, another participant in the training. “He has been absolutely faithful in attending,” Thomas said, “and also teaches some of the lessons. This program has prepared Matthew for leadership. Through the progress and transformation that’s evident in his life, it seemed good to us and to the Holy Spirit to appoint him as a pastor in the church I’ve been pastoring, which strengthened our church.”

Planting churches, strengthening the Body of Christ, and shepherding good growth. This is what we see God doing through the many leaders as we seek to train and multiply them around the world. And for that we are grateful.

Global Disciples Canada is a Christian mission organization that trains local leaders living near least-reached communities to multiply disciples for Christ. One-third of our world hasn’t heard the Good News of Jesus. Yet. Global Disciples refers to these as “least-reached” people, and fewer than 10% of all missionaries work among these groups. We live in a time where many of these people are within reach of a local church. Through our simple and effective strategy of training and coaching, believers share the Gospel in their own nations and cultures. Jesus said, “Go and make disciples of all nations,” and we’re committed to doing just that. If you are looking for a Christian mission organization to partner with to become a better disciple and help make disciples, connect with us today!
