Developing Leadership

A major key to the success of missionary activity lies in developing leaders who will be able to reproduce and multiply the life and character of Jesus regardless of whether it is in church, humanitarian ministries, or even in secular occupations. Indeed new churches that are planted need to be led by local leadership, financed out of the local congregation and able to propagate new churches without any outside assistance.
The same is true with any developmental program that assists the poor and needy in other cultures. How this can best be done is to turn to Jesus and examine his method of discovering leadership potential, and then training and empowering future leaders to continue the work of the Kingdom of God.
No one has been more effective or successful than Jesus in all of history. Learning from his model where he is able to impart godly principles into fragile and messy human endeavors is the key to developing a leadership mentality and style that will afffect not just the people a leader trains, but the multitudes those trained leaders will impact for generations to come.

This course invites us to examine those principles and discuss their implementation with each other.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height="55px"][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_section][vc_row][vc_column][vc_empty_space height="55px"][vc_column_text]

Part 1: Jesus and Missional leadership

Part 2: Identifying leadership potential

In this lesson we will look at the importance of identifying potential. We see that Jesus goes to a very clear process of understanding who are the people that he wants to invest in, to release and empower to change the world. [/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]

Part 3: The Methodology of Jesus

In this lesson we examine the methods that Jesus uses to teach his disciples. His primary focus is on building personal relationships with his disciples to affect a long term character change in their lives.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]

Part 4: The objective of leadership training

In this lesson we will examine the question of what Jesus plan was planning to do with the disciples once he selected them. His objective was to take the character and culture of heaven and impart them to his disciples. We will also discuss the challenges that arises from this objective.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]

Part 5: A Commitment to Reproduction and Multiplication

This lesson is about an exciting topic, as we will talk about the life of Jesus being reproduced and multiplied to impact more lives, and how it can happen with our ministries as well. Brad shares many exciting stories of the lives of many people being impacted across the world through multiplication. [/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]

Part 6: Practical steps towards leadership development

In this final lesson on leadership, we will look at some practical issues that we could employ in learning how to develop and release future leaders. Not just in terms of identifying their but also in terms of developing their character to become more like Jesus. We need to take a look at some of the keys to help us develop good solid ministry that will continue long after we finish our on earth.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][/vc_section][vc_row full_width="stretch_row" css=".vc_custom_1523541864250{margin-bottom: -70px !important;background-color: #e5e5e5 !important;}"][vc_column][vc_empty_space height="25px"][vc_column_text]
