A leader with the right heart for God and His mission can see great things happen!

Some people want to be leaders because they want to be in charge, to call the shots, to be the “big man.” Others desire to serve, to guide people or develop new initiatives. And some become leaders because God simply has called them, and given them a clear vision for what He wants to do through them with His people.

Sam and Chris fall into this third category of leader. They’re gifted, called, trained, and with the right heart. But most of all they have a vision for leading beyond themselves.

Both are Nigerian church leaders, and working with Global Disciples to equip a new generation of serving leaders with a vision for reaching least-reached people with the Gospel.

Sam said, “The leadership training from Global ‘lifted my lid’ and got me out of the box I was in.” He’s broadened his focus to equipping leaders who are disciple-makers, ready and able to plant new churches. He and his church cluster have added discipleship-mission training, equipping future church planters. And small business development—SBD—gives church planters and new fellowships a means of support.

What started as leadership development has broadened to include planting 7 new churches. “In some of our churches,” Sam reported, “we have a senior pastor and an assistant. That helps the assistant be prepared to take on a new church as we multiply.”

Chris has a similar story; for several years, he’s been training leaders with the help of Global Disciples. But his vision to develop leaders has gone beyond his own network of churches to other groups and fellowships.

“The training is spreading throughout our region,” he said. “My passion is to see leaders well-equipped. I want to do more to train disciple-makers too, so they can multiply and plant churches.”

As Global Disciples, it’s a joy and a privilege to partner with leaders like Chris and Sam, helping them to equip a new generation of men and women to guide and multiply the Body of Christ in Nigeria, and around the world!
