The necessity of church-wide one to one training and discipleship

Tony argues persuasively for the imperative of recruiting and empowering men to do the work of pastoring:

You would need to start with 10 of your most mature Christian men, and meet intensively with them two at a time for the first two months (while keeping in touch with everyone else by phone and email). You would train these 10 in how to read the Bible and pray with one or two other people, and with children. Their job would then be twofold: to 'pastor' their wives and families through regular Bible reading and prayer, and to each meet with four other men to train and encourage them to do the same.
