When thinking about who to invite on Growing Leaders we encourage churches to recognise the diversity of those who may benefit from the course.
Participants on Growing Leaders have...
- Ranged from 16-82 in age.
- Been men and women.
- Led small groups, worship groups, the choir, outreach projects, youth groups, children's work, bell ringers, congregations, and so on.
- Led nothing, but been spotted as potential leaders.
- Been on the PCC, church leadership team, church wardens, paid staff.
- Not been on anything!
The sessions don't focus on the specifics of leading a particular type of group, or on one leadership role. This means the material can work well with a mixed group - either from one church or a group of churches.
Growing Leaders focuses on the characteristics and skills of Christian leadership that are part of all leadership roles -the foundational issues of character and call are central to the course.
It's our hope that Growing Leaders will help equip leaders at every level of church life to be led more by Jesus, to lead more like Jesus and to lead more to Jesus.
