Episode 166: Going From Leader To Planter

Leadership Pipelines with Resonate Church

Today, Keith Weiser and Craig Lovelace join us to talk about church leadership pipelines and how you can take a student from leader to planter.

Keith Weiser // Lead Pastor Resonate Church 

Craig Lovelace // Executive Director Resonate Network 

Notable Points:

  • Purpose of pipeline: to be who God wants them to be
  • Win of the pipeline: Third generation disciple (Disciple who makes Disciples)
  • Start with freshmen because if you reach freshmen you reach the world
  • Having a leadership results in:
    • A structure to create growth
    • A vision for the ministry
    • Clarity to be effective
  • A pipeline helps you stop spending time and energy on what’s not developing leaders
    Steps to developing a leadership pipeline:

    • Step 1: Take an assessment of every single thing you do as a ministry.
    • Step 2: Ask “What are our students experiencing through our ministry?”
    • Step 3: Ask “What are the competencies being developed from what we do?”
    • Step 4: Look and see if a pipeline already exists through the previous steps that you didn’t notice before.
    • Step 5: Form a pipeline based on those things being done on accident. Form it based on what rises to the top.

4-5 meetings with 4-5 different people and ask: How did you get engaged with what we do here? How did you lead yourself, how did you move to leading other people?
