Every baptized Christian is supposed to multiply and make more disciples. How does our parish prepare people for this mission and then send them out to accomplish it? Tim discusses all of these critical points in this chapter.
Tim introduces the next section on mobilizing leaders with a warning. If you don’t multiply your leadership, you will burn out. He gives two extremes in parish life that must be avoided if you want to mobilize your leaders.
Tim notes in this chapter that the end goal should be lay people operating creatively on their own. This vision can sometimes be a scary thought to parish leaders, but Tim further discusses why it is vital for your parish to become vibrant.
