    The cries are loud and clear: “We need more leaders in our church!” Now, at last, you have a biblical and practical pathway to increase the leaders in your church.

    In this Master Class I was blown away by this: what if redemptive leaders "build systems not so much to get things done but so that people flourish"? What a powerful idea that would transform the church and missional endeavors!
