I enjoyed the portion of this book that talked about "The Leadership Pipeline". I thought that it brought the importance of mission as a team effort. Recently God has been placing the importance of church planting on my heart and this chapter shows the necessity of having a team when you are doing the work of apostleship and heading into enemy territory. Training up strong leaders is one of the most important aspects of multiplying missional leaders who will then carry the gospel to the ends of the earth. One of the things the book talked about that I thought was vital was considering those who are stepping into leadership in these four ways: Character, Capacity, Chemistry, and Calling. It shows that not just any individual who shows interest in Jesus should be the leader of a missional movement, nor are they charged to by God. However, it gives us a good lens to look at when we are discipling these perspective leaders towards understanding the heart and necessity of leadership.

I also love the family aspect of being on mission together. It is so important for any missional movement to reflect the characteristics of the family of God. Not simply as an attractional pull, though through this lens it is obvious to see why less people would want to join what is not a family. But God desires for all of us to live as a family that lives life together and enjoys one another. When we do not have this deep-seeded love that is rooted in Christ for our brothers and sisters in Christ it is difficult to serve as a team in order to create disciples and it also does not reflect the desire of God's heart for our communities
