How do mega pastors like Bishop T.D. Jakes, Joel Osteen and Rick Warren identify and choose the next generation of leaders? A new study gives a look inside the process.

The late Dr. Myles Munroe said, “Trapped inside every follower is a future leader.”

A new study finds that the best interns and residents suitable for future leadership roles come from within the congregation itself.

A recent national study of church internships and residencies, perhaps the largest ever, looks inside the leader training process of more than 300 churches.

The just-released, richly illustrated report, “Leaders in Training: Internships and Residencies Help Churches Shape Future Leaders,” sponsored by Southeastern University, summarizes the findings.

The project was overseen and authored by Warren Bird, Ph.D., director of research for Leadership Network.
