Leadership Life Skills Course 

 

 Leadership

Introduction
We need to be growing and developing leaders throughout our church. But that's not the only place Christians can lead!

God may have called you to be a leader where you work. Or where you study. God may have called you to be a leader in your home. Or even a leader in your church.

Having looked at other courses we have developed our “Leadership Life Skills Course” designed to encourage and equip you to be a godly leader.
The areas we are called to serve in may differ but there are some common skills we can learn together.
 

The Course
“Leadership Life Skills” will take place monthly and there will be 5 sessions. Topics covered will include: How should I lead? A toolbox for leaders; Growing as a leader and Thriving as a leader.

There will be 3 parts to each session – and we have invited experienced Christian leaders to share with us.

Our first session starts on Sunday 27th February - What is leadership? Sessions start at 12:30pm and will finish no later than 2:30pm. Bring your own lunch to eat before we start.
