Multiplying Leaders and Disciples

Who took a chance on you? (as a leader)

A [chance] is the ability to fail and it effects other people.

What is your biggest obstacle in multiplying leaders...

  • ability to train and teach

  • trust

  • desire to be perfectionist

  • time in relationships, they have to do it or they won't learn

  • overcome their fears and anxieties as a leader

  • setting appropriate expectations

  • disorganization, changing the process as you go along, not
    being planned out

Matt 28:19-20

19Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in[a] the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age."

The verb in this verse is make disciples...we are to “make.” The goal of discipleship is to reproduce yourself. Cell church isleader breeder. The test is when the follower is able to “make”
disciples; i.e when Calvin cloned himself.

How can cells breed leaders...
  • responsibilities for the group

  • look at them from the beginning as leaders...notice where

  • their gifts are at and what they are good at. What is natural.

  • the leaders number one job is to develop the next leader. The focus is no the cell, but leadership development and develop their relationship with Christ.

  • Being creative in what our cells is about more than the weekly meet, but also where it members are bent, whether that is serving, healing, etc.
