Whoops! (6 of 8)

I’m sharing some bonehead moves we made when starting Forefront. One of the most boneheaded was not requiring our leaders to have apprentices. We talked about having apprentices but we didn’t require it.

At Community Christian Church in Naperville one of the ways Dave Ferguson and his staff measure church health is by their leader to apprentice ratio. True church health is shown by a one to one ratio. Every leader has an apprentice. Man, I wish we had done that at Forefront. In a sense it’s what allows God to bless you with growth, because He knows you can care for those new people, expand your ministries, and reproduce when necessary.

Every leader has an apprentice.

How are you doing with that?
