duplicators not doers

By April 12, 2011Leadership

For any church to remain healthy, grow, and expand, the leadership must be about duplication — the art of equipping others to do the work of ministry as God has gifted them.  The temptation most ministers face is to be doers, not duplicators.

It might stem from insecurity (“What if they do it better?”) or pride (“I’m the only one who can do it right”).  Either way, being a doer stunts the church by capping the growth at the ceiling of our individual abilities.

Are you a duplicator or doer?
