We asked church planters & lead pastors about their leadership development process, this is what they said!

  • We don’t have enough leaders.
  • We prefer to develop our own leaders vs. rely on outside institutions to develop leaders.
  • We struggle to create learning & equipping environments outside of our worship service(s).

Sample size of 56 churches
