Leadership Essentials Fact Sheet

Learning Community icon

Because it matters what you build on.


In these ever-changing times, it’s difficult to guide ministry through life AND launch bold new initiatives!

As leaders, our eyes are constantly looking for what works and surveying the landscape for new ideas. Meanwhile, something significant— something foundational and important—cries out for attention and we aren’t aware of it- leadership training.

Ministries are deeply dependent upon faithful, Christ-like leadership. Leadership Essentials provides a safe place for women and men to discover and implement the building blocks of Godly leadership. These men and women recognize that gentle, yet courageous leadership training is needed to align people and programs around the fulfillment of God’s vision for the church.

Leadership Essentials is designed for pastors, ministry leaders, young leaders starting out and established leaders looking for a tune-up. The immersions cover critical areas of Christian leadership such as:

  • Leading from my unique gifting
  • Building healthy relationships
  • Understanding and articulating vision
  • Navigating change for the sake of the mission
  • Building teams of people for that mission
  • Gently and courageously leading
