Humanly speaking, ministries are deeply dependent upon faithful, godly leadership.

The PLI Leadership Essentials Learning Community provides a safe place for women and men to discover and implement the building blocks of godly leadership. These women and men recognize that gentle yet courageous leadership training is needed to align people and processes around the fulfillment of the Mission of God.

To lead others well we must first lead ourselves well. Leadership Essentials helps participants grow in leadership and influence in whatever context they find themselves.

This learning community is designed for couples and individuals who lead or are growing into leadership in a variety of settings including churches, schools, ministries, and non-profits. Good leadership is rooted in the capacity to accomplish developing and supporting the engagement of people to accomplish something extraordinary together.

Know More About Christian Leadership

Christian Leadership unites emerging leaders together from a variety of religious organizations as partners in an inspiring training environment. Christian Leadership is an intensive form of traditional Christian discipleship. Traditionally, Christians have sought the role of the missionary as the highest lay expression of devotion to the belief. Christian leadership is anchored on the Biblical and Christian principles given by a Christian leadership coach. Leadership Training requires an individual to communicate effectively. An attitude of openness and accepting other people’s attitudes and purpose often serve as roadblocks to becoming an effective leader. Being unable to empathize and understand other people’s situations lead to conflict, dropped performance, and misunderstandings.
Leadership training also involves helping the individual learn to take responsibility. There are important responsibilities that are crucial to an organization and ultimately affect the lives of people in that organization. Neglecting the welfare of others often becomes the source of the organization’s complication. A Christian leadership assists the individual to accept the roles and responsibilities of being a leader and makes him/her aware of the impact of taking care of others’ welfare on the organization.

A Christian coach helps an independent learner to make difficult emotional decisions. A good leader must be able to make decisions by taking into opinions the impact of such decisions not only on oneself but more importantly in the lives of others. Courage, confidence, and inner strength of a very best leader can make an organization move ahead with the best objective for all.
