A Word to Those who can’t Follow

Bob FranquizChurch

At a recent conference I spoke at, I talked about one of the most important qualities of a Church Planter. While there are many to choose from, one of the most important qualities a church planter can have is the ability to follow. Why is this important to a new Senior Pastor? Because the best church planters and Pastors are those who followed their Pastor when served on a church staff.

Church Planters who leave churches because they can’t follow anyone are asking for problems in the future. If you can’t follow anyone, few are going to follow you.

The greatest leaders were great followers first.
