The Eight Leader Essentials

Over the years, we've discovered several key essentials to creating the optimum group environment in which God can work.

The essentials are not a checklist for your development as a leader. They're gauges you should monitor throughout your leadership, regardless of how long you have been leading groups. 

This training is actually 8 individual video sessions. The first video will give you a basic overview of the essentials and how best to implement them into your leadership.  

Each of the videos that follow is 2 to 5 minutes long and covers one of the Leader Essentials. The training also includes follow-up questions and practical advice to help you implement the essentials in your group leadership. 

  1. Stay Connected
  2. Cultivate Relationships
  3. Promote Participation
  4. Serve Together
  5. Celebrate Change
  6. Provide Care
  7. Replace Yourself
  8. End Well


“Seeking God first means that we know him as the God of grace who is for us. He is the one who will provide what we need, and we must give up our own self-help programs. But we can’t just have him and have it all done. We also have to be changed into people who can produce the fruit of the life we desire, and we do that by finding his ways and learning to live them.” - How People Grow by Dr. Henry Cloud & Dr. John Townsend

Regardless of how long we have followed Jesus, we have the opportunity to take our next step with Jesus. Our next step towards the life that He has crafted for us. Maybe you are wanting to learn more about becoming a leader? Or maybe God is putting it on your heart to learn more about the Bible? We want to walk with you as you navigate your journey with Jesus by offering some tools/resources/suggestions for ways in which you can grow and develop personally.
