This workshop is aimed at leaders of Churches, leaders in the Corporate, Public Sector, Third Sector and small businesses.

It will help you, in an open and supportive environment, to become more alive in your role, more secure in your identity, more invested in your character development and more influential in your relationships.

Come prepared to be honest, open, challenged and changed and you will find that you meet Jesus in a new way, return refreshed and ready for your next challenge and look at the issues you face from a completely new perspective.

Each day there will be time for devotions, worship and spiritual reflection on leadership issues. Delegates will also work closely with Simon Barrington who will help leaders develop their own personal development plan based on 5 I’s of Leadership : Intimacy with Jesus, Identity in Christ, Integrity of character, Inner Strength and Influence. By the end of the week, delegates will have been supported to develop a personal development plan and will be partnered with other leaders to support them through the application.

The workshop format will be dynamic, interactive, and demanding. It brings out and develops each individual’s gifting and addresses each individual’s situation, rather than giving a formulaic grid.
