“The duty of every leader is to raise up other leaders’.
If you’ve spent any amount of time around church or ministry leadership you will probably have heard this countless times, which is good. Because it’s true. But (as every Christian will know) just because something is true, doesn’t mean it’s easy to apply. Like many aspects of leadership, the path to understanding how to apply this involves experience and wisdom – which is why I’m so pleased to bring you this interview with Ness Wilson.
Ness leads Open Heaven Church in Loughborough, which is a church that she (along with a few friends) planted when they had barely finished being students themselves. It’s pretty incredible – the full story is on the podcast, which you can get on iTunes, Stitcher, at the end of this post, or wherever you get your podcasts. Ness still oversees Open Heaven, and is on the core team for the Pioneer Network. On the podcast, we ask Ness this question: How do you raise up leaders? Here are some of our reflections on what she says.
