Welcome to the Leader Development Lesson Series presented by the Jack McDowell School for Leadership Development, in cooperation with and based on, EQUIP’s Million Leader Mandate materials. We are excited to offer this leadership material that can be used to encourage, equip and enliven the current leaders in your area and prepare them to be ready for service.
As indicated by EQUIP, this Leader Development Series will serve to train, grow and equip leaders through lessons that focus on the development of the following key dimensions of a leader’s life:
1. Spiritual Formation ~ Building the leader on the inside (Matthew 7:24-25)
2. Skill Formation ~ The practical doing part of leadership (Psalms 78:70-72)
3. Strategic Formation ~ Compound, or multiplying, results in ministry (Mark 1:16-17)
As you endeavor with your leadership group in this Leader Development Lesson Series, we would encourage you with the words from Dr. John C. Maxwell:
“Our objective is not simply to give you tools to become a better leader. We do hope this will happen.
Our goal however, is far more than that . . . We want you not only to be a leader, but a leader of leaders.
We want you to be a mentor to leaders, who will multiply in others the training you’ve received.
Do you remember what the Apostle Paul said to Timothy? He wrote . . .
‘And these things which you have heard from me, in the presence of many witnesses,
entrust these things to faithful men, who will be able to teach others also . . .’
Remember, leadership development is not an ‘event’ but a ‘process.’ We don’t believe you can prepare
to be a great leader in a day. We are asking that you decide now to be a student of leadership.
Be a part of the process. Learn it. Live it. Pass it on to others.”
