The Authentic Leadership seminar’s focus is on the relationship we have with Jesus and not on performance or skills.

  • Redefine Christian leadership as influence in and through the Holy Spirit.
  • Learning to lead in the way of Jesus.
  • Celebrate and encourage each other as equal and necessary members of God’s global family.
  • New life in Christ and the resulting effect on our identity, human needs, motivational gifts, mind and emotions, which, by God’s Grace, will profoundly transform the way they lead and influence others.
  • Seminar Titles: Living in Newness of Life, Relationship-the foundation of new life, Identity and new life, The Gospel and human needs, Motivational gifts and expressing your new identity, The Gospel and our minds, The Gospel and our Emotions and Jesus is our life.

Participant Testimony

Thank you for this training! The understanding of what it is to live by faith in the grace of Jesus alone is foundational and transformational for me. These are not new teachings that I didn’t know, but old eternal truth that hit my heart all over again like the first time.
