It is important for missions mobilizers to grow in the art of creating ownership. Most leaders/mobilizers are leading from influence and not position. And most mobilizers are primarily inspiring and motivating fellow volunteers. Ultimately we do not want people going to the nations because we told them to but because they know that Jesus is worthy.
