Episode 276: Moving from Addition to Multiplication

Developing a leadership pipeline starts with yourself.

In Episode 276 of the NewChurches Q&A Podcast, Daniel and Todd discuss how to curate a leadership pipeline with limited people and resources. Here’s Stephanie with today’s question: 

How would a smaller church that does not have many leaders in place even begin the process of curating a leadership pipeline? You can’t bring leaders out of thin air, so where would you begin if leaders, money, and resources are scarce? 

In this episode, you’ll discover:

  • How being a smaller church with limited resources can be an opportunity for effective disciple making and leadership development. 
  • Why you shouldn’t underestimate the importance of coaching skills.
