The subject is as broad as it sounds and there are more questions to be asked than imaginable. Yet, the formation of an approach to adult leadership development is essential for the future.
One of the great downfalls currently facing the church involves the area of leadership.
Congregations are struggling with poorly equipped (at times unqualified) leaders, or no leadership at all. Sadly, too many congregations of the Lord’s people have no idea who will fill the needed leadership positions in the days ahead.
A plan needs to be developed in each congregation for the training, equipping, and developing of leaders to prepare for the spiritual warfare currently facing the church and what is to come.
God’s people need to recognize these challenges, and the current leadership of today must rise up to prepare leaders for tomorrow.
We should all be aware of the consequences of failing to plan for adult leadership development. What we need is a vision of the benefits that will be experienced for the Lord’s kingdom in the next generation. This impacts our children!
