In every church, there is always a shortage of leaders. Depending on the size of your church, the age, spiritual maturity, etc. can all factor into why this is.
One of the problems for many churches is that only a few people identify and raise up leaders. It is put in the hands of elders and staff. Each staff identifies and raises up leaders for their particular area. Usually churches end up fighting over people because the need is so high.
What if, everyone raise up leaders? What if, you lead worship and you raised up leaders for the student ministry or small groups and vice versa. What if, you are constantly on the lookout for new leaders for every ministry team, not just yours? What if, when you had a conversation with someone about serving on your team and they said, “I don’t know if that is a good fit for me.” Instead of the conversation ending there (which it usually does, they don’t want to be on your team) we respond with, “Well, what would you like to do?” And then help them find a place in that ministry with that leader.
What if, everyone raised up leaders for everybody?
