We will strive to engage every leader at every level of ministry in the Church of God of Prophecy. We desire to provide the content, tools, and resources needed for each one to fulfill their personal calling and the Church’s mission of evangelism and discipleship.
“Then He said to them, “Follow Me, and I will make you fishers of men. They immediately left their nets and followed Him.”
Matthew 4:19, 20 (NKJV)
We are dedicated to implementing practices and processes that will achieve quality results exceeding the expectations of our constituents. This will require updating existing content and exploring opportunities for new content development. LDD content, tools, and resources must be excellent, applicable, and deliverable to our leaders around the world.
“But to the saints that are in the earth, and to the excellent, in “whom is all my delight.”
Psalm 16:3 (KJV)
We believe lifelong spiritual, relational, and intellectual development are essential to the success of our leaders. We will support this continuous development through creating a learning pathway that provides content, tools, and resources to our leaders in every phase of ministry. We will strive to create an environment where we learn from one another so that we are unified in our purpose to fulfill Christ’s commission to the Church.
“But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.”
2 Peter 3:18 (KJV)
We recognize that we are stewards of these ministry efforts. Therefore, we make a commitment to be accountable to our peers, to those who have been given authority over us, and to the leadership of the Church of God of Prophecy that we serve. We choose to be accountable to wise management of our resources, to being examples of the faith, to producing content, tools and resources that are excellent, applicable, and available.
To build a culture of accountability, we must strive to:
- Assume personal accountability for our actions and their impact;
- Focus on finding solutions and achieving results;
- Actively engage in discussions and commit to the decisions made;
- Involve others in the decision-making process;
- Fulfill commitments made;
“Place yourselves under each other’s authority out of respect for Christ” Ephesians 5:21 (GW).
We show our passion to serve as we embrace our roles in our homes, local churches, communities, and in this ministry of Leadership Development and Discipleship. We commit to making our personal interests secondary so that we can serve Christ and the Church in the development of leaders. We commit to serve those we lead as well as those we follow. In the spirit of service, we freely give of our time, energy, and resources.
“For even the Son of man did not come to be served, but to serve,”
Mark 10:45 (NIV)
To impact leadership globally our content must be accessible. Enabling equal access for all requires proactively designing content that addresses a wide range of needs with sensitivity to technology, culture, language, and user ability. We will strive to develop content, tools and resources that are intuitive, effective, and accessible to our global leaders. This means developing content in various delivery formats and languages as well as increasing the number of available training materials and qualified trainers.
“Come, all you who are thirsty, come to the waters; and you who have no money, come, buy and eat! Come, buy wine and milk without money and without cost.”
