David Putman speaking on "The Pastor Leader" at #Exponential

David works with pastors all over the country through auxano on vision clarity.

Leadership has to begin on the foundation of discipleship.

The church's mission: discipleship. Number 1 principle for discipleship is you have to become the type of disciple you want to make.

If you want to grow the church, you have to grow the leader.

5 Areas Every Leader Needs To Grow In

Leaders confront the brutal facts about themselves.
Key Question: What are those growth areas?

The upper room identity is purpose. This is leaders responsibility.

Vision Pathway
