“Now, I encourage you as an elder, an eyewitness of the sufferings of Christ, and one who shares in the glory that is about to be unveiled. I urge my fellow elders among you to be compassionate shepherds who tenderly care for God’s flock and who feed them well, for you have the responsibility to guide, protect, and oversee. Consider it a joyous pleasure and not merely a religious duty. Lead from the heart under God’s leadership - not as a way to gain finances dishonestly but as a way to eagerly and cheerfully serve. Don’t be controlling tyrants but lead others by your beautiful examples to the flock. And when the Shepherd-King appears, you will win the victor’s crown of glory that never fades away.”
1 Peter 5:1-4
We believe that the local and global Church (Jesus’s bride) will be able to better fulfill its purpose on the earth as church leaders invest in their leadership development. In this pillar, you will be equipped and empowered as a church leader to build a united church family, activate and empower the giftings within your church body, and create a movement that connects you to the kingdom as a whole.
