How to Raise Up Great Mission Leaders in Your Congregation: Every church needs a way to identify and develop great mission leaders from within your congregation. Wes Griffin and Dan Slagle have discovered the keys to finding, training, and empowering the leaders that you need to drive your mission program to go beyond the walls of the local church. 

As a pastor, one of my passions is to see every Christ-followers live missionally, intentionally aligning their life to be used by God in redeeming all of creation. Becoming a missional church begins with missional leaders and I have found that ILI’s 8 Core Values provide the perfect framework and discipleship program for raising up missional leaders who God can use to transform their congregation, community and world.
