“Lead Others to the Glory of Christ”

Christians are called to lead each other into the maturity of Christ. There is always someone in the Body of Christ who is searching for help to grow further in Christian knowledge. Some of us may be called leaders on the level of cell groups or specific ministries in the church, others have God’s mandate to lead local congregations as pastors or apostles.

This Leadership series, focusing on principles of leadership in the church can help you to become a more effective leader in the Body of Christ. Strong Christian leaders are needed today and the church is never bigger than its leader. Enjoy the journey of learning more about leadership. Please proceed through the Introduction and the 10 lectures available via the available links below.
