CHURCH, CORPORATE & CIVIC
Though to date this ministry plan has centered on leaders within churches and ministry organizations, a significant part of the call in this next season is to marketplace leaders.
“Go for he is a chosen vessel of mine to bear My name before gentiles, kings and the children of Israel”– Acts 9:15
The above verse includes the Apostle Paul’s call to ‘kings’ – the ultimate marketplace leaders of the day.
Within this broad category, there are 3 distinct focuses:
- Corporate leaders, their boards and senior leadership teams
- Business leaders within the church
- Political leaders in all levels of government
The need for corporate leaders to have confidants and encouragers who not only understand the pressure of senior leadership, can articulate wise counsel when it comes to the vital areas of family balance, personal peace of mind and spiritual centering, is clear. In addition to one on one coaching, Leaderscape will pursue other marketplace speaking opportunities at conferences and for major corporates.
Ephesians 4:11, that the role of church leaders is to equip and release church leaders, is one of the most misunderstood passages in scripture. Everyone is called to ministry, not just the clergy.
Leaderscape shares a passion to see a missional recognition for every leader operating in the marketplace; both for them to be ambassadors for Christ, but also for them to be significant resourcers of Kingdom vision. We feel well equipped to help launch Kingdom Builder/Business ministries within local churches, which will both validate the role of business people inside and outside the church, and engage them on a journey of enhanced generosity.
25 years experience encouraging political leaders in Australia has left Michael with a greater than ever recognition of the need to encourage people that make themselves available for public service. From local mayors to state and federal government ministers, they respond to authenticity, care and spiritual wisdom. It is Leaderscape’s intention to spend time actively engaged in continuing these key mentoring relationships.
