Working under the umbrella of the National Overseer
This ministry will work along side the National Bishop to see church growth in Eastern Canada. This includes working along side pastors and potential leaders to see development in their leadership ability. The Leadership development department will assist the Overseer and review board in structuring an effective review process for Ministerial licensure, Pastoral Candidates, and New Mission Work.
The Leadership Development department will work alongside the Overseer and National Educational Director to create a handbook for new Pastors on Pastoral procedure; and to put together a concise syllabus for emerging leaders and those entering the ministry.
We will identify, train and develop potential leaders, and that will seek to establish criteria for transition in leadership. This will include existing leaders, prospective leaders and emerging leaders. Our desire is to develop a multicultural, multigenerational ministry.
