Publisher's Summary

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

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 provides strategies for how you can activate gifts, help others take ownership, and develop a simple scorecard for measuring your kingdom-building progress. 

Besides rich insights from the Gospels, Hero Maker is packed with real-life ministry stories ranging from paid staff to volunteer leaders and from established churches to new church plants. A practical tool accompanies each of the five practices, with several illustrations for how to use it. 

Whether you lead ten people or ten thousand, Hero Maker will not only help you maximize your leadership, but in doing so you will also help shift today's church culture to a model of reproduction and multiplication. Authors Dave Ferguson (a Chicago pastor and church planter) and Warren Bird (an award-winning writer) make a compelling case that God's power and purpose are best revealed when we train and release others, who in turn do likewise.

Become that rare breed of leader who brings change into our world by sacrificially investing in others who become the heroes. By becoming a hero maker, you will join a movement of influencers that are impacting hundreds, thousands and perhaps millions of people around the world.

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!

Acts 1:8- Change the World

This book has the potential to change the world. It's the best book I have ever read and everyone should read it. We will be implementing all of the teachings and continuously studying this book as the ministry we operate (BOLD3 Coffee - www.bold3.org) continues to grow. Praise Jesus for this book.

Great leadership insight

Went through this with leadership team in conjunction with 2018 Exponential Conference videos. It really helped us cast vision and set clear direction for our church.
