The story of LEADERSCAPE begins with a vision and a purpose. The vision – to help pastors in their endeavours to help people. Globally, Michael had been assisting those in ministry for years, whilst a Lead Pastor himself, but it became time to get focused on helping more pastors, more often.
Michael catalysed his experience in the non-profit sector, initially as Associate Minister of Hillsong church, for its first 12 years, then as Senior Pastor of Shirelive, in Sydney’s south, for 18 years.
During these 3 decades, as well as launching a number of non-profit initiatives, both locally and globally, as well as serving on a number of board of Directors, Michael continued his keen interest in coaching leaders in the corporate and church sectors.
Michael’s field of ministry also has included positions on boards around the world for a couple of decades and, in particular, with Alphacrucis, as Chairman of the Board. Its journey to become Australia’s first Pentecostal Christian University has progressed under his leadership.
The new season of Leaderscape now marks a convergence of his 35 years of leadership experience, cross-cultural sensitivity and a Master’s Degree in leadership.
The journey has progressed for almost a decade, and Leaderscape has expanded towards its global vision of ten nations and languages, with its resources also available in Spanish, with more to come!
