How to Build Leaders

Paul trained new believers with the idea that he would raise up leaders to replace himself. Notice how Paul describes this method of leadership training.

  • Training was a combination of words and demonstration (1The 1:5).
  • Learning occurred as they experienced real life problems (1The 1:6).
  • They in turn trained others (1The 1:7-8).

How is this similar to identifying and developing an apprentice? How could you apply this method to raise up leaders? Each of us, as a leader, has the responsibility to develop others. Some of these may be people who could replace us. Others may have potential that is a better match elsewhere. If you see potential, do your best to nurture it.
