LEAD is intended for anyone desiring to lead an Outward Group, a discipleship group, lead a serve team, teach a class, pursue further training as an elder or church planter, or anyone simply wanting to grow as a disciple and become better equipped to lead in areas relevant to the leader’s unique passions and gifting.
Each semester of LEAD will cover 3-4 discipleship topics related to a leader’s development, which will be learned through:
No. Completion of LEAD does not guarantee placement into a defined leadership role at Outward. Outward Group and ministry leaders are appointed at the discernment of the elders and church staff. While LEAD does function at times as a development program for specific ministry leaders, it is designed primarily as a discipleship tool and equipping resource for anyone desiring personal growth in Christ.
LEAD Labs take place once a month immediately following the Sunday service at the church, from 12pm-2pm. Lunch and childcare will be provided (included in the cost for LEAD).
Yes. When you sign up for LEAD, you'll be given an option to indicate whether you will need childcare for the monthly cohort discussions. There is a nominal fee to help offset some of the cost for babysitting.
No. We may require a full year's completion of LEAD for some ministry leaders, but in general, anyone wanting to do LEAD for personal growth will find value in even just one semester. Additionally, the sequence of semesters is interchangeable - you could do Fall/Spring, or Spring/Fall.
No. We can recommend some books, but beyond that we've chosen to keep the material private. This is partly because the video material we are utilizing for LEAD is paid content, but mostly because the real value in LEAD comes through the discussions that take place and the collaborative learning that happens through shared engagement.
Love Jesus. Live outward.
