For this week’s #RedeemerRecommends we’re drawing your attention to a leadership training opportunity hosted by our friends in the New Ground sphere of churches, read on for more info!
Here at Redeemer we are blessed to have many people amongst us who are gifted leaders, and involved in leadership in many areas of their life, be that in the workplace, in their family, or within the church as a volunteer. You may not recognise yourself as leading in any situations, but you may wish to in the future, or you may simply be wanting to grow in your self-leadership! In any of these cases, it is always good to identify opportunities to grow and stretch ourselves. One of these opportunities is available for us just down the road!
The New Ground Academy was set up in response to Jesus’ command in Matthew 28:19 to ‘Go and make disciples of all nations’. Its aim is to train and equip the church leaders and church shapers who are seeking to live out this verse in their day to day lives! It is a two year course, hosted by Everyday Church, Wimbledon, with two days of training taking place each month (on Friday & Saturday) for 10 months of the year, with holidays in August and December. Teaching at the Academy is led by a number of different men and women from across Newfrontiers and further afield, and topics in 2019 will include the Holy Spirit, Discipleship, Apologetics, Ethics, Leadership, Sexuality and many more! Each days training consists of teaching sessions, discussion groups, and Q&A opportunities, as well as time for lunch and coffee breaks when you can get to know other Academy students from different churches across London and the rest of the UK. There is a charge of £350 a year. It’s not without cost, but as anyone would agree, growing as a leader in any capacity always requires some cost. If finances are an issue, please do get in touch and we will do what we can to work something out.
As someone who is almost a year into the Academy, I can testify that it is one of the best decisions I have ever made, every time I come away from a weekend of teaching I feel not only better equipped but also set on fire again for the lost and more desperate to see the impact of the gospel on the lives of believers and non-believers! I’m sure if you speak to anyone at Redeemer who has been on the Academy they would tell you a similar story!
So, you’re interested, what do you do next? Well why not join us THIS WEEKEND (7th or 8th of June) at Everyday Church, for one or both of the taster sessions, which are free to attend with no need to sign up! Just come along and hear some great teaching on the book of Romans. Each day starts with registration at 8:30, and finishes at 5:30 on Friday and 4:30 on Saturday. If you can’t make it this weekend but want to find out more there is a link below. Sign-up for next years course (starting September 2019) ends on the 28th of June, so don’t delay! If you have any more questions don’t hesitate to contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org
I hope you can join us this weekend. The Academy really can change your life.
