If you are looking for a quick-fix, one-size-fits-all formula for church growth, you will not be happy with LDR. However, if you are looking for a vehicle to help you develop a healthy church and a winning team, LDR is just the ticket. I would describe LDR as a process of discovery, design, and implementation in which a church leadership team rethinks the functions of a New Testament church within a twenty-first century context. It is a process that is thoroughly anchored in the Word and intentionally committed to missional principles. At the end of the two year journey, a church that works the process will end up with a “playbook” for effectively advancing Christ’s mission in their local context and around the world.
