Church LEADER TOOLS

Below are links to teaching videos and articles to help grow your leadership! In addition, you’ll find downloadable handouts and original documents, resources to go deeper, and reflection/discussion questions. On the right they are also listed by category. They are best used to foster conversation and can be shared with fellow colleagues, church councils, and/or committees/teams within your congregation. ​And please email Pastor Stuart Luce, Leadership Development Director at [email protected], who would love to be helpful in growing your leadership with resources, workshops or retreats!

Now think who you can forward a “Church Leader Tool” to in order to grow their leadership?
