Taking Notes


Maximise Leadership Academy 2023-24


  • To develop and invest in leaders and potential leaders to serve within our churches and beyond, by equipping them to lead themselves and others

  • To create a community of developing leaders across our churches who will learn from each other, sharpen one another and support each other in the present and the future

  • To create a pipeline of leaders who will help grow and develop our churches and pioneer and plant new projects, communities and churches

Summary:   The Leadership Academy is a one year process, not an event. It is by invitation only and it has 3 main elements:

Input :  There will be 3 in-person gatherings for all participants and mentors, with input from significant leaders. There will also be a couple of online gatherings over zoom.

Mentoring:  These gatherings will be supplemented by monthly mentoring sessions, supporting you in processing the input and helping you to implement it in your life and leadership.

Leadership Responsibility/Experience:   All participants will be engaged in some practical form of leadership in local church/community so that it is not just theory but practice!

Therefore participants would be expected to commit to the following:

·         being engaged in some aspect of leadership in their local church

·         being able to commit to enter fully into the LA’s 1-year programme, including the 3 in-person gatherings and monthly mentoring sessions

·         being willing to pay some of the cost of the LA. The cost to be paid when registering is £60, but this does not cover the Maximise Weekend at the Quinta. Mentors will not be expected to pay, other than for the Maximise weekend.
