Leadership Focus exists to provide easy access to valuable missional resources, training, and coaching that will prepare and credential a new generation of bold, Christ-centered leaders
Leadership Focus is the credentialing tool used within the Church of God. It is a 6-module curriculum to support the credentialing requirements in the Credentials Manual of the Church of God and is designed to prepare leaders for ordination. Candidates are assigned to a cluster group that they will “journey” with throughout a nearly 3-year process. An experienced coach is assigned to the cluster for each module; cluster coaches change for each module. Each module is 6 months in duration with the exception of the first module which is primarily an orientation module and is partly self- paced. At the end of the process, a candidate will have spent a little more than 2.5 years with their cluster group members, guided by 5 different coaches.
Commencement Knowing God’s will for me (Calling) – LF is a pursuit of knowing in the fullest sense – using all of our senses.
The Commencement module is the orientation module; the primary purpose is to (1) orient candidates to the LF Program and help them get started on the right foot, (2) begin building community among cluster members, and (3) exploring the call of God.
Knowing the integrated me and articulating God’s will (calling) for me in a missional focused LAMP
The final module, Celebrations, is the capstone of the LF process. All developmental objectives completed thus far are now funneled into an integrated Life and Ministry Plan (LAMP). Each candidate will articulate living out their missional role for the next 1 to 3 years in their LAMP.
