In this episode, I interview NextGen Pastor, Lenny Moore. Lenny and I have a great conversation about being intentional when it comes to raising up new leaders. We talk about how to empower leaders in our ministry to lead according to their gifts, not ours, and Lenny shares his journey of discovering the importance of investing in leaders over programs.

How to Empower Leaders, Not Develop Doers

  1. Allow producing great leaders to take precedence over program excellence
  2. Accept the fact that some things will be done differently if they are not done by you
  3. Lead with clear vision, not just clear orders
  4. Regularly repeat the mission, vision, and values of your ministry
  5. Spend less time making decisions and talking about “how”
  6. Spend more time allowing others to make decisions and talking about “why”
