BE A DEVELOPER OF DEVELOPERS
Welcome to episode 15 of Conversations with Every Day Youth Workers, the podcast of The Youth Worker Daily. How are you developing leaders? In this week's episode, I get to have a conversation with Mac Lake, founder of The Multiply Group, and author of The Multiplication Effect, Leading Leaders, and his just released, Leading Others.
Mac has served as a youth worker, a pastor, a church-planter, and a leadership developer. His passion is growing leaders for the local church. Today we talk about the importance of pouring into our volunteer leaders as it relates to and impacts student ministry.

I felt called into ministry when I was 17 years old. Growing up in a small church in rural West Virginia I was surrounded by a loving group of people who believed in me and encouraged my spiritual journey.
In 1981. I packed my bags and moved to the Windy City, Chicago, to attend Moody Bible Institute. After graduating Moody, it was time to head south, where I took a position as a youth pastor at Northwood Baptist church. It didn’t take long for me to realize I needed more training so my new bride Cindy and I moved to Dallas, Texas to attend Dallas Theological Seminary. Over the following years we had three amazing children: Brandon, Jordan and Brianna.
After graduating seminary, we moved back to South Carolina where I served for seven years as an Associate Pastor at Pawleys Island Community Church. An incredibly supportive group of people poured their best into me and gave me amazing opportunities to grow in ministry.
