Ready, Set Grow!
Three Conversations That Will Bring Lasting Growth to Your Church
General Council of The Assemblies of God
In the American church, we talk a lot about developing leaders, but few pastors have a real strategy to turn willing workers into dynamic multipliers. Scott Wilson is one of those few. God gave Scott a vision and a plan for his staff team and volunteers. It wasn't a quick fix. The strategy took three years, and it had plenty of bumps in the road. At the end, though, the leaders of his church were more inspired, challenged, and equipped than ever before. Their lives, their church, and their community will never be the same. The principles and practices in this book aren't a magic formula, and they aren't a rigid code. They are profound guidelines for pastors to adopt and adapt so they can build a new culture that equips leaders at all levels and celebrates the right things.
Scott Wilson has been in full-time pastoral ministry for more than 20 years. He is the Senior Pastor of The Oaks Fellowship in Dallas, TX. In the last three years, the church has experienced robust growth, nearly tripling in size-now ministering to nearly three thousand people. This ministry includes The Oaks School of Leadership (an innovative partnership with the Southwestern Assembly of God University) and Life School (a charter school currently educating over four thousand students in five locations in the Dallas area).
