It has been stated that everything rises and falls on leadership. This statement is partially true. The term ‘leadership development’ is a broad term referring to an environment, attitude or climate of leadership philosophy. Leadership development is the creation of an environment that promotes the overall learning of skills and knowledge to grow and organization. This is a broad understanding of leadership.
We make a distinction between the leader and his or her style of leadership. Our primary focus is the development, progress, and improvement of the leader individually. We seek to give attention to his or her personal and spiritual growth as an individual follower of Christ. Such growth will influence his or her ‘style of leadership.’
The development of current and emerging leaders is a vital ministry in today's church context. Leader development is any activity that invests in the development of an individual leader while enhancing the quality of leadership overall.
Our biblical mandate is . . . . "so the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work." 2 Timothy 3:17
There are 3 general observations that can be made about the development of a leader:
- God develops a leader over a lifetime. An effective leader is one who not only has a vision for his church, but is learning the new skills that are needed to lead the church into the future.
- God uses people, circumstances and ministry assignments to shape the life of a leader. Romans 8:28
- Leadership plateau is often indicative of a developmental need or growth issue within a leader's life. Effective leaders maintain a learning posture throughout their life.

Church Unique is a multi-month visioning process to help churches develop a stunningly unique model of ministry that leads to redemptive movement. CU guides churches away from an internal focus to emphasize participation in their community and surrounding culture. CU offers an approach for rethinking what it means to lead with clarity as a visionary. Each church has a culture that reflects its particular values, thoughts, attitudes, and actions and shows how church leaders can unlock their church's individual DNA and unleash their congregation's one-of-a-kind potential.
Your are a visionary leader and your church probably has a vision statement. Yet most churches are stuck in a trap of generic communication without a vionary plan. Just like a restaurant needs a more specific focus than "serving food," a church needs something more than biblical generalizations like "loving God, loving people" or "making disciples who make disciples." God Dreams reveals a simple and powerful planning method that will bring energy and focus to your church like never before.
