"The church is the vehicle God has chosen to use to raise up leaders for his work in the world. Over the past centuries, we have allowed the church to move to the sidelines, and we are now lamenting the results. Churches all over the world suffer from a serious leadership vacuum. Participating in the process of building churches that build leaders is potentially the most fruitful and fulfilling work you will ever do."- Jeff Jones
