Lead Academy uses a distinctive and creative approach to equipping leaders and enabling churches fulfil their vision. Most leadership events are low on participation and high on information with around 90% of the knowledge being imparted by the speaker. A learning community approach however recognises that 60 – 70% of the information needed is already present within the room and that through good facilitation members can hugely benefit from one another’s experiences, knowledge and passion. Our 2 year interactive journey uses specialized learning communities to connect churches and leaders. Together participants work through the challenges and opportunities of leading churches in a 21 Century context.
