Yesterday I posted the opening keynote from the 2014 Southern Africa International Lectureship for the Church of Christ that was held in Botswana over Easter.
Here is the sermon text for my second presentation which focused on diagnosing the real problem the church is facing today. I’m among those who often say the problem is poor leadership, but I believe we’ve been wrong. The real problem: poor followership.
This was influenced heavily by research and thinking about ACC and its role in the church, and by Leonard Sweet’s I Am A Follower.
