Leadership Development in the Now & Future Season

One of the biggest challenges facing the church today is that of growing a leader.

It is a critical task that requires a long runway, as these quotations reveal:

 “When God wants to make a mushroom, He takes six hours.  When He wants to make an oak tree, He takes sixty years”.

The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time is now.” – Chinese Proverb

An active leadership development journey prepares your church for the future and adds encouragement to the present.

Our leadership development track will help you answer these questions:

  • How can my church have enough Small Group / Ministry Leaders?
  • How can my church have sufficient quality people to groom to be Board / Pastoral Leaders?
  • How can my church have a designate ready to succeed the Senior Pastor?

In our in-depth experience over the last decade, we see a crying need for churches to have a robust system to raise up a new a generation of leaders as the older ones pass the baton.

Such a system is akin to a strong tree, an oak of righteousness that can stabilise the church and bears lasting fruit.

Our Leadership Tree track is an organic and developmental pathway of resources that groom leaders at every level.

If you would like to know more about this concept, you can watch our 3 min introduction video to The Leadership Tree Series!

Churchlife Resources does more than just train or teach. We are passionate in diagnosing, customizing and coaching you to implement journeys that grow leaders over a season.

This approach will see you develop leaders is the various areas of the church so that there is a unity to the development. Instead of silos of sporadic growth, our resources to help you develop your leaders are tied to this tree that God desires to grow in your church!

With intentionality and focus, every church can begin growing the leadership tree.


We believe in coaching leaders to multiply themselves by raising others to serve in ministry.

And the things you have heard me say in the presence of many witnesses entrust to reliable men who will also be qualified to teach others. (2 Timothy 2:2)

“Churchlife Resources does more than just train or teach. We are passionate in diagnosing, customizing and coaching you to implement journeys that grow leaders over a season.”
