What does it mean to be a leader? How to become the leader God wants you to be?

The Church faces an urgent need to see a generation of spiritual leaders arise, leaders who have received God's gift and who respond to his call. After examining the lives of hundreds of biblical, historical and contemporary leaders, Robert Clinton also recognizes that God uses certain processes to train leaders.

The author identifies six stages present in the process of developing a leader. By studying these six steps, you will be able to:

  • Become aware of what God is already working in you;

  • Recognize where you are in this development process;

  • Identify potential leaders in your entourage;

  • Support the development of future leaders.

This work is intended for all those who exert an influence on a group of people in order to direct them towards God. Whether you are a professional or not, God is at work in your life for you to become a leader after His heart.

Each chapter concludes with a section that will help you implement the principles covered.

Robert Clinton is a teacher-researcher at Fuller Seminary in the United States. He focuses on modeling and teaching leadership concepts. He is also the mentor of several emerging leaders.
