Out-of-balance emphasis on leadership

This post is from the defunct blog “Dying Church”

From an interview with megachurch pastor Dr. Ted Traylor:

I sense that in the past 10-15 years we have moved to an out-of-balance emphasis on leadership in training and equipping church leaders to the detriment of spiritual formation in the man of God. "Everything rises and falls on leadership" is the phrase I hear over and over. And while I am appreciative of this teaching and have gained great help from many who stress leadership training, it seems to me the church rises and falls on Christ in me the Hope of Glory.
