Have you ever thought that heroes are made? Every hero has a hero maker—a mom or dad, a friend, a co-worker, a teacher, a coach, or you and me.
Hero makers have a pattern of investing in others to see the full potential of others released into others. Essentially, they are disciple makers who make disciple makers. Their scorecards are measured not by what they do and accumulate, but rather by how they invest in others and release their potential.
In this new resource, Dave Ferguson and Todd Wilson look at what makes a hero maker and unpack the five hero-making practices identified in the book Hero Maker (by Dave Ferguson and Warren Bird) with a special focus on the life and memory of Bob Buford. A true hero maker, Bob leaves a hero-making legacy of thousands of hero makers.
For several months, Ferguson and Wilson have been writing and talking about these five practices. This book is the culmination of their efforts to start, shape and steward this important conversation. Throughout each chapter, the authors share inspired stories and helpful insights.
You’ll also find reflection questions at the end of each chapter, as well as a practical and simple “tool” you can use to help you start to implement each of these practices in your own life and ministry.
Bottom line: Level 5 multiplication must be led by hero-making leaders who are passionate about creating and maintaining a biblical culture of multiplication. To advance the Kingdom of God, we need hero makers who will step up to be used by God to catalyze movements of Level 5 multiplying churches.
The Legacy of a Hero Maker will help you embark and stay on this lifelong adventure.
