Hero Maker is the theme for Exponential 2018. It is based on Five Essential Practices for Leaders to Multiply Leaders from the book Hero Maker by Dave Ferguson and Warren Bird. These five essential practices include multiplication thinking, permission giving, disciple multiplying, gift activating, and Kingdom Building. Most leaders measure success by what they accumulate, build and leave behind here on earth. They see themselves as the hero at the center of their own story. Hero-makers focus on who they catapult forward beyond themselves to have an eternal impact in God’s unfolding story.
Here’s the difference between heroes and hero makers. Heroes share what they know; hero makers share their lives. Hero makers invest in the development of leaders who invest in the development of leaders to the fourth generation. The point of Jesus’ ministry—why he spent three-fourths of His time with the few—was that they would do greater things. That was the goal. He knew the mission would be accomplished through them and the people they would disciple who would disciple others and so on. And the way to do this was just spending time together, rubbing off on them.
Join Ed Stetzer and Shaun Marshall as they discuss multiplication thinking!
