The Other Six Days
Leader Development is focused on developing a community of believers that practice their faith in their work. We believe that discipleship cannot be separated from its real world and that has implications for our work. We believe that work is worship.
We believe that each person is called to their work as prophet, priest and king. Our work is a prophetic harbinger driven by the immanency of the kingdom. We must lean toward our work with both a sense of its ability to speak of the future and also to actually move the present toward the future.
