The Leader’s Foundation

The Leader’s Foundation focuses on forming a godly self-image and proper foundation for leadership. It presents seven foundation stones for an emerging leader: 1) Knowing God, 2) Working With God, 3) Modeling a Godly Life, 4) Serving, 5) Ruling, 6) Reproducing, and 7) Expanding the Kingdom.

Main Objective

The object of this module is to help ministry leaders/emerging ministry leaders learn how to set in place the foundation stones of a life with God so that they will have a strong spiritual foundation and be able to reproduce others who do the same.

Module Overview

This module is an inward growth module geared towards helping Christian leaders ensure that their spiritual foundation stones are based upon Jesus Christ, the chief cornerstone, and that they are set firmly in place. It is crucial for someone called to be a leader in the Body of Christ to have a deep understanding of the “foundational basics” of the Christian faith.
