Here’s the typical pattern.
A young, dynamic, energetic, gifted leader steps up and creates new energy and evangelistic zeal to a new (or existing) ministry context. Exciting things happen and the work grows. New dimensions are added and the work expands until the old structures can’t contain it any longer. The ministry begins to look for leadership to somehow get this new ministry animal in control and help it become sustainable. It’s the crucial moment both for the ministry and for leaders.
Who are they going to look for to lead it into the next season of development?
