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.

Leader Development Mission

Teach believers how to win (disciple) pre- and nominal Christians to Jesus and how to develop them into fully devoted Christians in a North American context.

Leader Development Process

An imagined timeline for leadership development is connected and related to discipleship.

  1. Assessment (using assessment tools such as MBTI, StrengthsFinder, etc.)
  2. Mentoring
  3. Coaching
    • Basic coaching techniques in leadership environments.
    • Advanced coaching with ministry leaders (such a staff or department of a local church).
    • Professional coaching that one may pay for.
  4. Small Groups
  5. Faith-Life Education
    • For lay leaders this would be Faith at Work and integrated ministry
    • For advanced lay leaders or some ministers this would be OSOM
    • For full-time pastors or for college bound leaders this would be Christian Higher Education through SEU Ohio
  6. Relationships-Networks
    • Credentialed Women
    • Leaders Networks
    • Others

Note as a general guide for clarity:

  • Mentoring can serve those trying to discover their giftings and calling by walk with them on their journey as a mentor while they pursue it.
  • Coaching comes into play to help them once they are positioned and walking as an activator tool.
  • There are several arenas of life where the application of leadership is contextual.
