Publisher's Summary

In Hero Maker, you will learn how to bring real change to your church and community by developing the practical skills to help others reach their leadership potential.

Drawing on five powerful practices found in the ministry of Jesus, Hero Maker presents the key steps of apprenticeship that will build up other leaders and provide strategies for how you can:

  • activate the gifts of those around you
  • help others take ownership of their mission
  • develop a simple scorecard for measuring your kingdom-building progress

With rich insights from the Gospels, Hero Maker is packed with real-life ministry stories ranging from paid staff to volunteer leaders - from established churches to new church plants.

Whether you lead 10 people or 10,000, Hero Maker will not only help you maximize your leadership impact; but, in doing so, you will also help shift today's church culture to a model of reproduction and multiplication.

Chicago pastor and church planter Dave Ferguson and award-winning writer Warren Bird make a compelling case that God's power and purpose are best revealed when we train and release others to further advance the Kingdom of God.

By becoming a hero maker and investing in others, you can join a movement of influencers that are impacting thousands of people around the world.

Everybody wants to be a hero, but few understand the power of being a hero maker.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

A well read and interesting book on how to grow the Kingdom of God

This book lays out a clear way to grow not just a church, but The Church of God. Many concepts are presented in easy to understand and apply methods. The included odd documents are helpful visuals along the way.
This book was recommended to me by my church’s staff. I recommend this book to those who feel called to plant a church, as this will expand your vision and provide practical ideas to apply to that expanded vision.

Excellent book for church multiplication and leader ship development!

This is Dave Ferguson’s best book on multiplying churches and developing leaders. As always, it is written in a very accessible and easy to digest manner. Dave and others have figured out how to change the world with the gospel.

Will you choose to be a hero make me too?

Great book for all those looking to find their way with what we should be doing as a church! I choose to be a hero maker and not the hero. It is so worth getting and taking heart in what Dave says. Great narration too!
