4 Steps to Develop Leaders

4 Steps to Develop Leaders
Developing leaders around you is more important now than ever before. What good is the groundwork you are laying now if someone with less experience and know-how comes along after you and screws it all up?

In the very first chapter of the Bible we see a model of how God develops leaders:

(Genesis 1:26-31, NLT)

Then God said, “Let us make human beings in our image, to be like us. They will reign over the fish in the sea, the birds in the sky, the livestock, all the wild animals on the earth, and the small animals that scurry along the ground.”

So God created human beings in his own image.

In the image of God he created them;

male and female he created them.

Then God blessed them and said, “Be fruitful and multiply. Fill the earth and govern it. Reign over the fish in the sea, the birds in the sky, and all the animals that scurry along the ground.”

Then God said, “Look! I have given you every seed-bearing plant throughout the earth and all the fruit trees for your food. 30And I have given every green plant as food for all the wild animals, the birds in the sky, and the small animals that scurry along the ground—everything that has life.” And that is what happened.

Then God looked over all he had made, and he saw that it was very good!

And evening passed and morning came, marking the sixth day.

  1. God gave someone else dominion over what he established (26)

  2. God made them like himself (disciple, replicate) (27)

  3. God gave clear expectations and perimeters (28)

  4. God set them up for success (29-30)

After that, God was pleased with everything HE had made (31). Take these steps in developing leaders and watch the results with pleasure the way God did.
