Jesus people, loving people

Leadership Foundations

A year-long interactive training programme suitable for potential, new and experienced leaders at every level in the Jesus Fellowship.

The aim:

To ensure that leaders and potential leaders at every level are equipped to fulfil their role from a strong, balanced, Biblical foundation and from a healthy and growing relationship with God, themselves and other people.

What’s involved?

  • Four main Saturday training days, one each quarter, running from 10.00am to 4.30pm at venues in the central area of the church.
  • Each training day will comprise four main sessions with mid-morning and afternoon drinks breaks and a lunch hour for fellowship. Food will be provided.
  • Each day will include quality content from outside speakers who can bring mature experience and new perspectives to the training.
  • Between each main event an additional meet-up in smaller local groups for mutual encouragement and progress checks. There will also be further self-led training using resources which will be provided. This will be a session of about two hours, the date, time and place to be arranged by network members.
