Series 1: Foundations of leadership
This introductory series covers the foundations on which effective Christian leadership is built and sustained. Two fundamental principles of this series are that Jesus radically changed Christian leadership through His model of servant leadership, and that leaders primarily lead from the inside-out (incarnational), and not from the top-down (hierarchical).

In this practical series, the crucial area of a leader’s self-management is addressed by looking at the following areas:
- Managing our time
- Managing our tongue
- Managing stress
- Managing finances
- Managing our temper
- Managing criticism
- Managing our sexual desires
Series 3: Developing leaders and building teams
This important series addresses the critical area of how to disciple and develop leaders, how to build teams and how to foster relationships and harmonious working relationships on the team. Discipling and developing leaders is intentional, relational, and a central priority for all ministry leaders.
