The fullest expression of spiritual leadership...

"True leaders don't create followers. They create more leaders." 
Stop and ponder that quote for a moment.

Is it true?

If it is true, then...
1. Jesus is the greatest leader who ever walked the earth.
2. Making disciplemakers like Jesus is the fullest expression of spiritual leadership.

Why?

Because Jesus didn't create followers. He transformed followers into fishers—and disciples into disciplemakers.

And if all that's true (and it is), then we might want to rethink current conventional wisdom on leadership—and double down on learning to make disciplemakers like Jesus.

Why would we look anywhere but the life of Jesus for the fullest expression of spiritual leadership?

All disciplemakers are leaders, but not all leaders are disciplemakers.
