Next Level Church Leadership Academy

A new type of learning community for Elim - launching in Autumn 2016 this academy is for church leaders and leadership teams, wanting to be intentional about moving the church forward into the next season of health and growth within their location.

Taking place across four residentials over two years, our aim is that as a team you will learn and move forward on a journey to healthy and sustainable growth and practices in your church and ministry.

Gathering ministers and leadership teams from all over Elim in the UK, to learn and move forward together, the Church Leadership Academy will be facilitated by experienced leaders Mark Ryan, Steve Ball, Dave Ayling and Jason Heron (all of whom have benefitted from this process). In addition, there will be expert input from international leaders inside and outside of the Elim movement to bring the very best insights and practices.

Our two-year journey will include four areas to examine.

  1. Vision and Strategies for Growth
  2. Leadership Development and Discipleship
  3. Mission and Evangelism
  4. Stewardship and Organisational Change

The focus of our first gathering will set the tone and lay the foundation for our journey together, as we set visionary goals for your team we will then see how they play through the other areas to be examined later. We are delighted to be joined by a wealth of national Elim leaders, city church pastors who have pastored and led churches from the early stages of growth into larger churches of influence and they will be sharing some of what they have learnt along the way.
