  • Raising leaders mean not just raising the next person to be in charge of everything or someone replacing your position but also for them to be a leader in doing what they are good at.
    • For example: A pastor raising someone to be a deacon or a church treasurer, etc.
  • Also raising someone as a leader doesn’t mean always they are doing new things but also that the person is a leader in what they do in the sense of what we saw the definition of leader is: influencing others in a good way.
