We get the leaders in the future that we make now. (Randy Smith, pastor and educator)

Great leaders don’t just pop up when we need them. They must be trained, gain experience, and be tested in the workplace. And the best place to find them is from among us. Looking outside for leaders can be a disappointing venture, but when we grow our future leaders, we’ll know what to expect from their leadership.

So the Lord said to Moses, “Take Joshua son of Nun, a man [from among you] in whom is the spirit of leadership, and lay your hand on him” (Numbers 27:18).
