Empowering Leadership

Empowering leadership is about raising up and equipping others to lead alongside us. In this module we will look at what is means to be a leader, first and foremost led by God. We will seek to develop our own leadership, whatever our starting point, exploring our character, our gifts and skills and the context in which we lead. We will also discover tools to use to identify and encourage others in their leadership journey. This module is designed to benefit those in any level of leadership, not just within church contexts.

Date and Time: Wednesday Evenings, 7:00pm-9:30pm, 5th June – 3rd July
