My guest this week, Dave Ferguson is a pastor and an entrepreneurial genius. A lot of leaders have compelling vision, but what sets Dave apart is his ability to turn that vision into robust, healthy, reproducing organization. Dave is the co founder and lead pastor of Community Christian Church in Naperville, Illinois. He also built and leads the NewThing Network, a robust global church planting movement. Dave also built the Exponential Conference, equipping church planting leaders around the world. Dave has written several great books. His book Hero Maker: The Five Essential Practices For Leaders to Develop Leaders has been profoundly helpful among our staff. Dave and his wife, Sue, have three kids (Amy, Joshua and Caleb).
