Publisher's Summary

Most churches merely exist.

Many churches do not develop leaders intentionally and consistently. When leaders emerge from some churches, it is often by accident. Something is missing. Something is off.

Authors Eric Geiger (author of the best-selling Simple Church and Creature of the Word) and Kevin Peck argue that churches that consistently produce leaders have strong convictions to develop leaders, healthy cultures for leadership development, and helpful constructs to systematically and intentionally build leaders. All three are essential for leaders to be formed through the ministry of a local church.

From the first recordings of history, God has made it clear that he has designed creation to be led by his covenant people. More than that, he has decided what his people are to do with that leadership. Whether you are called to lead in your home, in the marketplace, in God's church, or in your community, if you are called by God you are called to lead others to worship the glory of God in Jesus Christ.

God has designed his people to lead.

    "Not enough detailsi"

    When I bought this book I was expecting that the author was going to go into much details about leadership. However, even though there are a lot of good points the author brings out about leadership and the Christian church but the author never shows the reader how to apply his points. This book was more on a macro level versus a micro level of developing leaders . So, I am disappointed that "design to lead" did provide Application to the main points the author was making. This book is not for leaders who would like to learn how to develop new leaders.
    One other thing I did not like about this book is that the author would continually bring up the same information throughout the book. The words are rephrased but it was the exact same points. I would consider this book more of a long lecture on leadership versus how to develop a good leader.
