"Leadership is largely a catalyst for what happens in a corporate body. Studies done in churches in different parts of the world have found that while many churches approach their ministry in different ways and have different emphases, a church that is vital and virile, and achieving that which it appears God has called it to achieve, has without exception a vital, virile leadership. I think it is also true to say that where you have a fellowship that is weak on leadership, you have a fellowship that is weak period. Now it doesn't mean that leadership is everything but leadership is a massive part of the health and well-being, and the effectiveness and efficiency of a fellowship of believers."
