The Emerging Leaders Program

Matt 9:37

The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few...

The Emerging Leaders Program is an opportunity for emerging leaders to establish their leadership now and impact their future ministry.

The focus throughout the program is to equip current emerging leaders in ministry to 'think' movements as Jesus did, to 'live' authentically as disciple-makers, and to 'be' Kingdom-minded. 
We are passionate about seeing generations of disciple-making movements launched in all church and community contexts as a result of this program.

There are no limits as to what ministry area you may be involved in as the program is individually tailored yet the process is structured. The various EL programs help you discover and identify your passions and calling, and equips you to be successfully launched into ministry.

What are the Programs:

These are our programs that are running simultaneously:

  1. Leadership Development - Lead Like Jesus (1 year)

  2. Foundational Ministry Training (2 years)

  3. Complete Ministry Training (4 years)

  4. Church Planters Cohort (2 years) - Starting in 2023!

Study Options:

We understand the importance of education, but we also recognize that there isn't a one-size-fits-all approach to studying. That's why we offer both accredited (via our partnership with ACOM) and non-accredited (our Leadership Competencies) options. Both options have been carefully designed with specific pathways to ensure that our values, desired outcomes, and focus on preparing you for your calling are not compromised but rather enhanced. When choosing a study option that supports your leadership development, we encourage you to explore both options or contact us for assistance in determining which one is best for you.
