The number one thing to do in ministry is to equip the saints to do the work of the ministry. – Joby Martin
People lead other people to Jesus. So we need to spend the majority of our time developing people, instead of programs and productions! So, what is the effective path to develop and empower leaders as disciple-making disciples and reproducing leaders? In this podcast from Exponential East 2016, Joby Martin, pastor of The Church of Eleven22, shares how they build up leaders in a way that has allowed the church’s attendance to grow from zero to over 7500 in three years.
“Sometimes putting people in positions a little early – where their dependence on God grows like crazy – is the best thing we can do for their walk with Jesus.” – Joby Martin
