Do you wish you had more qualified, committed, and mission-oriented leaders in your church to share the ministry workload? Do you have a passion for cultivating the God-given leadership gifts in others?

Most pastors say that the need to identify and develop leaders is critical to the health and growth of their church, yet most churches do not have an intentional plan for doing this. In The Multiplication Effect, Mac Lake reveals his practical, biblical, and proven strategy for addressing this leadership shortage and equipping future leaders to fulfill their kingdom mission.

In this book, Mac Lake will help you:

  • Identify potential leaders using unique training modules
  • Equip and disciple leaders at every level of their leadership journey
  • Empower leaders to multiply themselves by developing other leaders

Inspired by the greatest leadership example of all, Lake writes, “Jesus was a master of leadership development who saw something in people and then patiently walked with them to transform their spirit and their skills.”

Learn how to lead like Jesus and create a culture of multiplying leaders to expand God’s work in your community and beyond.
