Word to Pastor's

Serving in ministry thirty plus years, traveling both here and abroad, we have seen Pastors face the universal problem of Developing Church Leadership.

Most Pastor, have ministers and leaders in their church that come from a variety of inadequate church training and experience. Many times it is “leadership” or the lack of leadership that becomes our biggest trouble. The lack of biblical submission to authority, the “I know more than you” or “we never did it that way where I come from” attitude and the "let me tell you what to do" spirit. They will say that they are in covenant relationship with you and have a loyalty to you and the ministry until things don’t go their way, then they leave and go to the Church down the street.

Pastor, do you have leaders who have a heart to serve, but only do so when they are instructed? They take no initiative by themselves.

Do you have leaders who don’t understand leadership? They show up late, but come early when it is their time to shine… want pulpit time, but don’t want to work… they are there to eat at our fellowship dinners, but leave before clean up time.

We need more leaders who understand what it means to serve, who will have a heart after God, loyalty to the pastor and the vision of the church, hungry for more and who walk in a teachable spirit.

This is why we are making ourselves available to train your ministers and leaders.

The program we bring equips emerging leaders with an understanding of biblical leadership principles and helps them develop practical application, causing them to be more effective in ministering to their communities.

“Effective and fruitful ministry depends on effective and fruitful leadership”

Let us train and equip your leaders to be effective Last Day Ministers, who will impact your church, your community and the world. For more information, (803) 617-9571

We Thank God for You,

Bishop John
