In the American church, we talk a lot about developing leaders, but few pastors have a real strategy to turn willing workers into dynamic multipliers. Scott Wilson is one of those few. God gave Scott a vision and a plan for his staff and volunteers. It wasn't a quick fix. The strategy took three years, and it had plenty of bumps in the road. At the end, though, the leaders of his church were more inspired, challenged, and equipped than ever before. Their lives, their church, and their community will never be the same. The principles and practices in this book aren't a magic formula, and they aren't a rigid code. They are profound guidelines for pastors to adopt and adapt so they can build a new culture that equips leaders at all levels and celebrates the right things.
