The Academy of Christian Leadership
Claybury’s goal is to enable Christian leaders and workers to fulfill their full Christian Leadership potential in Kingdom service. The Academy section of Christian-leadership.org is designed to make some of our training materials available, free of charge. Specifically, those designed to help leaders develop a Christ-centred servant character and model their leadership on Jesus.
Developing as a Christian Leader
The main programme in the Academy is “Growing the Servant Heart“.
This is a programme that examines what it means to be a Christian Leader modelled on the character and teaching of Jesus. It challenges the very nature of leadership in Christian settings. All too often, through lack of training and development, it is the world’s style of leadership that we see employed in the church and other Christian agencies.
Growing the Servant Heart is designed to enable Christians who are in, or who aspire to, leadership to examine what Jesus taught about leadership and seek to apply that in practical ways in daily leadership situations.
The course material is based upon the Christian laedership development work we have been doing around the world for more than 30 years. Claybury has worked in over 25 countries helping Christian leaders to grow to be Christ-centred servant leaders, but physical and financial restrictions have meant that there are many more leaders at we have been unable to help. Re-purposing our materials to be presented as on-line courses, available via the internet, enables us to support many more people in many more places than would otherwise be possible. Already the Christian-leadership.org website serves more than 50,000 Christian leaders a year from around 50 countries.
