Read to Lead

A termly book club for leaders. Our next meeting is on the 10th July 2017. For more details click here.

“If you’re a serious minded leader, you will read. You will read all you can. You will read when you feel like it, and you will read when you don’t. You will do whatever you have to do to increase your leadership input, because you know as well as I do that it will make you better.”  – Bill Hybels

Growing Leaders Course

 

Growing Leaders is a fabulous opportunity to stir into greater flame both a leadership gift but also one’s personal discipleship in the context of a group of people on the same journey. It’s a free course, funded by the church since we believe this is something both worthwhile and strategic to invest in.

 

In terms of the commitment expected from participants, the course consists of…

 

  • 3 Saturday away days and 7 Monday evenings (7.30-9.30pm) over the course of the year (Sep 2016 – July 2017).

 

  • We also set participants up with a mentor and ask them to meet with them between sessions (i.e. once a month-ish).

 

  • There are 4 pieces of work / projects which we encourage participants to work on over the year outside of the sessions which are gradually introduced as the course progresses:

 

  1. a leadership styles questionnaire
  2. a spiritual health check
  3. a life calling statement
  4. a develop a leader brainstorm
A more detailed break-down of the course dates and themes can be found here.
If you’d be interested in joining us on this journey, please fill in the form (find a copy hereor grab a hard copy from the outer office) and post it back into the designated postbox in the outer office by Sunday 12th June.

Ministries MOT

An outline for an ‘MOT’ session for ministries which you could use on an annual/bi-annual basis. It includes suggestions for how your ministry team can look back over and celebrate the past year, assess where you currently are ‘at’ under God, and listen to Him together for your next step.

Materials such as flip charts and post-it notes can be available from the office. Hand-outs can also be found here.
