The Legacy of a Hero Maker by Dave Ferguson and Todd Wilson
Have you ever thought that heroes are made? Every hero has a hero maker—a mom or dad, a friend, a co-worker, a teacher, a coach, or you and me.
Hero makers have a pattern of investing in others to see the full potential of others released into others. Essentially, they are disciple makers who make disciple makers. Their scorecards are measured not by what they do and accumulate, but rather by how they invest in others and release their potential.
In this new resource, Dave Ferguson and Todd Wilson look at what makes a hero maker and unpack the five hero-making practices identified in the book Hero Maker (by Dave Ferguson and Warren Bird) with a special focus on the life and memory of Bob Buford. A true hero maker, Bob leaves a hero-making legacy of thousands of hero makers.
Gaining by Losing by J.D. Greear
People are leaving the church J.D. Greear pastors. Big givers. Key volunteers. Some of his best leaders and friends. And that’s exactly how he wants it to be.
When Jesus gave his disciples the Great Commission, he revealed that the key for reaching the world with the gospel is found in sending, not gathering. Though many churches focus time and energy on attracting people and counting numbers, the real mission of the church isn’t how many people you can gather. It’s about training up disciples and then sending them out. The true measure of success for a church should be its sending capacity, not its seating capacity.
