Over the past few months we have witnessed some pretty cool God Things at Restore. Conversions, baptisms and small group multiplication just to name a few. The Jesus Mission in the Northland of KC seems to be gaining some momentum.
- Helping people find their way back to God
- Mobilizing Christ Followers to change the world
- Reproducing leaders, artists, and churches.
We have witnessed numerous individuals step through a formal apprenticeship process and become leaders. However, with that blessing has come a challenge. How do we adequately care and continue to disciple those leaders who are the front line pastors of the local church? The answer....COACHING.
Over the past six months six people have stepped into a coaching role. Each of those coaches have "naturally" become coaches by training and releasing at least one leader. But not enough. We have been focused and intentional about reproducing leaders but not as focused on developing coaches.
Today at our staff meeting we talked about who would become our next generation of coaches at Restore. Three key values became apparent as we debated amongst ourselves.
- Spiritual Maturity
- Reproducing Capacity/Experience
- Champion of Restore Culture
We came up with a list of highly capable people that have demonstrated each of these since the launch of Restore. We then made a commitment to investing more intentionally in these key leaders to help them take the next step and expand their influence and impact.
I can't wait to see how this conversation today becomes a catalyst to a whole new level of ownership.
