In some churches, breaking into leadership requires the blessing of Moses or an act of God — or both.
Older churches may be unknowingly restricting their leadership pipeline. If you require new leaders to work within existing confines, you are restricting the type of leader who will step forward to lead. Existing churches often need to create new outlets in order to develop new leaders. However, the cost and challenge of doing so may prove to be too difficult.
New churches, however, need new leaders. These potential leaders are often drawn to the risk involved. One reason why new churches create new ideas and new methods is that they attract entrepreneurial people.
If we want to increase the number of kingdom leaders, we need to increase the number of kingdom opportunities.
