The leaders of the church want to lead by example. So this season they will have their own LG. The goal is to benefit from a coaching approach in building up and strengthening the elders’ leadership team by revisiting, realigning & revamping the vision, values and mission. There will be a revisit to the roles and functions as leaders in the new season with a renewed structure. It has the purpose of supporting the team to become an even more effective and efficient one as it is looking to expand to Lisbon and beyond. It will surely be an interesting 8 weeks journey of responsible & dedicated leaders striving to become even better leaders to serve in a greater potential!
