This coaching group will focus on increasing capacity and competency in day-to-day execution as a leader, communicator, strategist—within ministry, life, and theology.
1 - Leadership (Part 1) 10 Characteristics of a great leader & influencer (1-5). Mark explores the first five of ten foundational characteristics of a great leader or influencer and what we can all do to develop them in ourselves.
2 - Leadership (Part 2) 10 Characteristics of a great leader & influencer (6-10) + The 3 Priorities of a Life and Ministry. Mark explores the second five of ten foundational characteristics of a great leader or influencer and what we can all do to develop them in ourselves.
3 - Communication (Part 1): Becoming the best preacher and teacher you can be. We will explore the approach to preaching and teaching (theologically and pragmatically) that Mark has found essential in his life and ministry, and pull out principles for all different styles and personalities of people.
4 - Communication (Part 2): Preaching and teaching to un-churched people. We will explore the “why,” the “what,” and the “how” of communicating to un-churched and de-churched people in sermons and smaller teaching environments.
5 - Strategy: How to grow your church, organization, or ministry. Growth doesn’t just happen. It has to be intentional and measurable. Of course it is God that grows a church, or ministry, in anyway, but there are things we must do to co-labor with God to see that happen, as best we can. Those things revolve around establishing the proper values, pouring into people in a particular way, a clear mission, and vision, etc.
6 - The How, the Why, and the What of Ministry. What animates effective ministry, the content of such ministry, and the trajectory of it? How God, the gospel and mission all fit together as the core elements of any thing that is going to impact your church, your people, your city, and your nation.
