Community Leadership Program

The Community Leadership Program is a life changing experience designed to equip and empower leaders to develop a vision for their community, and to take responsibility for and lead the change they desire to see.

The program brings together tribal chiefs, pastors from many denominations, business leaders and others to a two or three day forum.

Leaders learn from their peers and from principles of biblical leadership.

Topics include how to:

  • Identify problematic aspects of the local culture
  • Understand clearly the message of the Gospel in our context
  • Develop a vision for the community
  • Play a key role in Bible translation

Peace building, Biblical justice, meeting physical needs with the kindness of Jesus to create opportunities to also present the gospel.
