Learning Lessons as a Developing Leader – Family First

Learning Lessons as a Developing Leader – Family First

Over the course of this short series I would like to share several lessons I have learnt, and even some I am presently learning, that I hope will encourage anyone who feels they have further development and aspires to serve Jesus’ Church in greater measures through leadership. Next in this series is recognising the importance of putting family first.

Principled, Contextual Leadership

Principled, Contextual Leadership

One of the things that you learn before long in church leadership is that often decisions are made that affect people, and yet those people themselves had no say in the decision. Sometimes you will be the one tasked with representing that decision to them. Sometimes you will be the one who the decision affects. Walking these situations well requires deep convictions, pastoral skill and lots of humility.

Keys to Effective Communication

Keys to Effective Communication

The CCM School of Leadership was created by Christ Church Manchester to train and equip those with a leadership gift to lead well wherever they are. Communication is a key aspect of our leadership, both with team members that we work with and with our congregation or wider organisation. It is crucial that we not only concisely and clearly get the message across but do so with respect, a positive attitude, and recognise the differences of the recipient. In this session, we will be looking at communication within leadership, sharing some tips and advice on how to communicate efficiently, effectively and helpfully. In this session, Tom O’Toole looks at some keys to effective communication.

Developing People (Part 2)

Developing People (Part 2)

The CCM School of Leadership was created by Christ Church Manchester to train and equip those with a leadership gift to lead well wherever they are. When we drill down to the heart of leadership, we find that it almost always comes down to the same thing – developing people. Everyone around us is on a journey, and the best leaders are those who are able to help the people around them move forward on that journey, fulfil their potential and thrive in their ministry. In this Session, Mark Mumford drills down into this crucial topic of leadership development. Mark, along with his wife Nesta, leads Community Church in Derby. He is involved in the East Midlands Christian Fellowship, and he heads up the UK apostolic team for Salt and Light Churches.
