Publisher's Description

In Hero Maker, you will learn how to bring real change to your church and community by developing the practical skills to help others reach their leadership potential.

Drawing on five powerful practices found in the ministry of Jesus, Hero Maker presents the key steps of apprenticeship that will build up other leaders and provide strategies for how you can:

  • activate the gifts of those around you
  • help others take ownership of their mission
  • develop a simple scorecard for measuring your kingdom-building progress

With rich insights from the Gospels, Hero Maker is packed with real-life ministry stories ranging from paid staff to volunteer leaders--from established churches to new church plants.

Whether you lead ten people or ten thousand, Hero Maker will not only help you maximize your leadership impact; but, in doing so, you will also help shift today's church culture to a model of reproduction and multiplication.

Chicago pastor and church planter Dave Ferguson and award-winning writer Warren Bird make a compelling case that God's power and purpose are best revealed when we train and release others to further advance the Kingdom of God.

By becoming a hero maker and investing in others, you can join a movement of influencers that are impacting thousands of people around the world.

Everybody wants to be a hero, but few understand the power of being a hero maker.
