Spiritual Leadership Generator

Learn what it means to be a spiritual leader and live into your calling!

OVERVIEW
Learn what it means to be a spiritual leader and live into your calling! The Spiritual Leadership Generator is a process for developing everyday followers of Jesus into spiritual leaders. We’ll look at biblical leadership through the life of Christ and dive into what it means to apply these concepts in our lives. This training integrates some of the teachings from Spiritual Leadership Institute around teams and around how to behave as a leader, not just the theological and biblical training, but why leadership and being a Christian go together. It’s a deep theological education designed at a lower shelf, not a watered down version.

WHO IS THE GENERATOR FOR?
The Spiritual Leadership Generator is designed for both clergy and lay leaders. Whether you are a minister, wall-street trader, elementary school teacher, police officer, NASA engineer, or a stay-at-home parent, the leadership concepts learned in this Leadership Generator can be directly applied to your life.
  • I'm a lay person – I have been in church a long time and struggle to connect my faith with my everyday life.
  • I'm in a leadership role – I feel uncomfortable leading and oftentimes I don’t feel fully equipped to do so like the pastors around me who have received substantial training. It feels like I have been thrown in the deep end. I want the tools that could help make me be a better leader.
  • I'm a staff person – I lead a ministry and sometimes it feels like I am doing it all myself. I try my hardest to recruit people who care about getting the work done but sometimes it feels like leading a team is more work than just doing it myself. I want to build a team of people around me who are committed to following Jesus and sharing the work together.
