"This book will catalyze your congregation to become the leadership factory God intended it to be.”

J. D. Greear, Pastor, The Summit Church

Heroes are common, but hero makers are a rare breed. When you become a hero maker, you make the greatest possible impact for Jesus and his kingdom.

What is a hero maker? An elite kind of leader who brings change into our world by investing in others who become the heroes.

You might be a business leader, a pastor, or a volunteer leader – a leader of 10 or 10,000. Hero Maker will equip you with practical steps for building up other leaders and multiplying your influence for God’s kingdom.

Hero Maker will help you master 5 essential practices of Hero Making and learn to build up leaders like Jesus did: activate gifts, help others take ownership, invest energy wisely, develop a simple scorecard for measuring your kingdom-building progress, and more.

This book is packed with rich insights from the Gospels, plus real-life ministry stories ranging from paid staff to volunteer leaders and from established churches to new church plants. Authors Dave Ferguson (a Chicago pastor and church planter) and Warren Bird (an award-winning author) are your guides. They will equip you to become a hero maker so you can help others be hero makers too.”
