Leader Development

The capturing of the priesthood of all believers in the local church is the role of every pastor.

The ultimate team with the greatest latent potential is the local church. A congregation focused on service through giftedness can be an unstoppable force. Although a faith community can include business owners, cultural architects, entrepreneurs, professionals, parents, and children; the essential element of any church is its capacity for infinite collaboration in the gifts.

We hope to add a new dimension of influence and aid to our congregations by releasing some of that potential through the recruiting, training, and mobilizing of new and undiscovered leaders. After all, the Great Commission is good news through giftedness.

Who is Jesus?

More than two thousand years ago God sent Jesus Christ into this world. He became one of us, but he did nothing wrong. He showed us what God is like – merciful and kind. He healed the sick people, the blind were made to see, the deaf to hear, the lame to walk. Some people followed him, and to them he gave a new way of life – God’s way. But others hated Him because He was so good, and he exposed their evil ways.

He gave his own life as a sacrifice, a payment for our sins. He died on the cross to save us. Three days after he died, Jesus Christ came back from the dead. Now He lives in the power of an endless life to meet your need, to be your Saviour, to forgive your sins. Jesus Christ is the only one who can do this for you.

Why We Exist
