Growing Leaders

To Be Led More By Jesus, To Lead More Like Jesus, To Lead More To Jesus

We are running the Growing Leaders Course from September 2012 to July 2013; with a daytime session and an evening session each month to allow as many people as possible to participate. There are currently 24 people on the course; from teenagers to those in their 60’s and 70’s, female and male.

The purpose of Growing Leaders is to develop Christian leaders for the church of the twenty-first century.

  • Leaders dependent on the grace of God, confident about who they are in Christ, and empowered by the Holy Spirit
  • Leaders clear about their unique call and consistent in living it out
  • Leaders serving the church with lives modelled on the servant character of Jesus
  • Leaders passionately committed to evangelism
  • Leaders skilled and competent to lead at a time of great challenge and change.
