SPIRITUAL FOUNDATIONS • TRIMERGENT LEADERSHIP® SYSTEM • INTENSIVE SEMINARS
Trimergent Leadership® System
This core area is designed to develop people into high performance leaders able to impact their church strategically from a holistic, systems perspective. The Trimergent Leadership® System is a leadership development training process that consists of Leading Self, Leading Teams, and Leading Organizations. Each area consists of ten sessions (9:00am - 4:30pm) which meet one day every other week.
This core area will explore biblical and theological foundations and practices of Christian spiritual formation necessary to become an authentic servant leader in an intimate relationship with God. A day long Sabbath experience off campus will be included at the conclusion of all six sessions. The Spiritual Foundations core area provides an opportunity for each person to focus on “being a Christ follower ” as opposed to just “doing ministry”.
Six Sessions meeting one day a week from 9:00AM - 2:30PM Session 1: Spiritual Formation: a discovery and learning experience designed to lead the learner toward developing a “rule of life” for personal health in servant leadership. Session 2: Spiritual Disciplines (Part I): a learning experience to understand and practice six spiritual disciplines necessary for life-long soul care and obedience. Session 3: Spiritual Disciplines (Part II): a learning experience to understand and practice an additional six spiritual disciplines necessary for life long soul care and obedience. Session 4: Christian Ethics: a learning experience to study and apply the basic principles of the Christ Ethic as seen in the New Testament with emphasis on teachings from the Sermon on the Mount. Session 5: Character Development: a learning experience designed to explore the process of becoming an authentic personal (ethic and integrity issues). Session 6: Understanding the role of a Servant and the Mind of Christ: a learning experience designed to assist the learner to reflect upon the qualities of servant leadership and consider models for spiritual formation in the congregation.
Three Certificates Available
Leading Self: It starts where leadership begins. Our “Leading Self” training course equips people with the leadership skills to take responsibility for their own growth and development based on gaining an accurate understanding of who they are and what they bring to the organization. Leading Teams: The second level of leadership requires the ability to lead a group of people. Our “Leading Teams” leadership training course transitions those who have learned to lead self into leading groups. It develops leaders who can bring a group of people together to achieve group and individual success. Leading Organizations: The third level of leadership requires the ability to lead people who lead others. “Leading Organizations” empowers those who successfully lead self and teams with the leadership skills to exert influence from an organizational perspective. It prepares those who will be determining the future of your company how to lead effectively. Five Leadership Capacities: The Trimergent Leadership® System and its proven principles and practices emerge through the application of the five leadership capacities at each level of our leadership training courses. The five leadership capacities are: Vision • Transformation • Value • Development • Teamwork
