“And the things you have heard me say in the presence of many witnesses entrust to reliable people who will also be qualified to teach others”.
(2 Tim. 2:2)
This course is for leaders who desire to bring the Kingdom of Heaven through their communities, social teams and enterprises. The Kingdom leaders, share the same mission of Jesus to bring Heaven on Earth and so they share similar journeys. This course helps leaders to set their leadership to serve others and help them to enter the Kingdom of Heaven. Jesus criticised the Pharisees for not entering the kingdom themselves as well as preventing others who were entering from going in further. This should be an example for us as leaders. Am I entering the kingdom and am I helping others to enter should be the driving vision for any follower of Christ. Building a church, a social team or a business is often done as an end in itself, instead of a means to an end of helping people enter the kingdom. This course, amongst other things, helps you to reflect on how you are leading, how you are building influence and how you are operating in your gifts. Spiritual leadership means, on God's behalf and in responsibility to Him, to develop other people in such a way that they grow up spiritually and God's kingdom is built. The aim of this training is to build a solid foundation, a common basis for ministry, so that mutual trust, teamwork and competence in godly leadership can grow. We will cover important elements of leadership and encourage each person through individual mentoring to make progress towards spiritual maturity and understanding what it means to be a leader and why the spiritual life and the character of a leader is so important. Through the assignments and projects given in the course you will develop tools to give you a clearer perspective of your future ministry as well as tools to help you develop the people you called to lead.
