Christian leadership training course

Every great endeavor begins with planning. The same is true of Christian Leadership, which requires planning, study and dedication. I believe that leadership is more than just an extraordinary gift with which a random, few, select and privileged individuals receive from on high. I believe that it is fair to say that the Lord Jesus commands the exercise of leadership. It is not a matter of method or technique, but of adopting a mentality, an attitude. Throughout the pages of this site I hope to demonstrate that the leadership established by God is different than that practiced in the world.

The purpose of this site is to contribute to the formation of mature leaders, instructed in the Word of God and apt to minister to His people. Throughout these posts I plan to present biblical principles of leadership to facilitate the practice of effective leadership within any situation or context, as well as things to avoid, where to get help when you need it and how to deal with extraordinary circumstances. The subjects of these posts will be presented in the light of the basic premise of the New Testament which can be summarized by affirming that every Christian is called to be a minister, a leader and this includes you!

I believe that each one of these posts will help you understand and respond to the whispering voice of the Holy Spirit in your spirit calling you to effective leadership as a servant of God. In order to help you respond better to this call I will try to organize these articles into structured and objective lessons that will be applied to your practical daily life. At the end of each post I will try to include a list of practical questions to help you assimilate the content and measure your level of understanding of each leadership principle. Dedicate yourself to the study of these articles, review them, try to respond to the questions and pray that each principle becomes a reality in your life and ministry. Finally, don’t pass up the opportunity to read the recommended supplemental materials sprinkled throughout the site.

My prayer is that the Lord would use these posts to take you to new levels of holiness and spiritual awakening, culminating in an effective spiritual leadership in the kingdom of God.

These articles are based on a small group leaders course originally published and applied in the Vine Church, Brazil and has been used as a basic course text for tens of thousands of small group leaders in a movement that now has spread to various countries in South, Central and North America, Europe, and Africa. The success of this material has proved itself over the past 15 years. If you would like information of how to get help with the implementation of this course in your church please don’t hesitate to contact us.
