LEADERSHIP TRAINING AT CCM

We believe that the leaders of tomorrow are in our churches already, and so we have set up the CCM School of Leadership training program to identify, develop and encourage the leadership gift.

WHILE YOU LEAD

When Jesus coached his disciples, he did so on the job. Most of the time they were actively getting on with their leadership, and now and then he would pull them aside and offer some timely input.

We approach leadership development in a similar way. The CCM School of leadership provides leadership training by meeting for one Friday morning per month, to provide encouragement, prayer and teaching as you lead in your ministry areas, and this is supplemented by a couple of overnight residentials each year to go a bit deeper.

COURSE CONTENT

The CCM School of Leadership will provide important leadership training from proven leaders that can help take your own leadership to the next level.

Sessions will include practical teaching, groups discussions and the opportunities for Q&A, as well as prayer and ministry times.  

The course starts in September 2018 and runs for one year, and will include six Friday morning sessions and two overnight residentials.

September 29th 2017 - Building a Three Year Strategy For Growth
Building a Three Year Strategy For Growth: Devotion/Community/Mission

Growth doesn’t usually happen by accident. In this session we look at what it means to plan for growth. What issues do we need to think through? What strategies or processes do we need to put in place? What steps can we take to ensure that our hard work is consistently effective in reaching our goals?

Speaker: Andy Brownlee – Andy is one of the elders at Christ Church in Manchester. He pastors CCM:Withington and leads the CCM:School of Theology. He also has an MA in Church History and a post-graduate diploma in Missional Leadership.

November 2nd-3rd 2017 - Developing People (overnight residential)
Developing People

When we drill down to the heart of leadership, we find that it almost always comes down to the same thing – developing people. Everyone around us is on a journey, and the best leaders are those who are able to help the people around them move forward on that journey, fulfil their potential and thrive in their ministry.

In this 24 hour residential, we hear from two movement leaders about what is involved in developing people, as well as fellowshipping, eating and praying together.

Speakers: Mark Mumford – Mark, along with his wife Nesta, lead Community Church in Derby. He is involved in the East Midlands Christian Fellowship and he heads up the UK apostolic team for Salt and Light Churches.

Andrey Bondarenko – Andrey leads a group of newfrontiers churches in Ukraine and for over twenty years has been actively involved in serving the church in Russia. A few years ago, Andrey started to develop a service to India. His primary focus is to identify and train young leaders, both to strengthen existing churches, and to plant new ones.

December 1st 2017 - Managing Yourself (pt. 1)
Managing Yourself

Often, the hardest person to manage is yourself. Many leaders who have perceptive insights into others lack self-awareness about their own strengths, weaknesses and personality traits. Developing an understanding of how you tick, and putting in place strategies to get the best out of yourself is a key part of self-leadership, and in this session Bryn begins to engage this topic.

Speaker: Bryn Hughes – Bryn is a consultant in church leadership and church management, and works with churches and movements all over the world to help them lead better.

Developing an understanding of how you tick, and putting in place strategies to get the best out of yourself is a key part of self-leadership, and in this session Bryn builds on the foundation laid in the previous session to take us deeper into the topic.

February 16th 2018 - Keys to Effective Communication

Keys to Effective Communication

Communication is a key aspect of our leadership, both with team members that we work with and with our congregation or wider organisation. It is crucial that we not only concisely and clearly get the message across but do so with respect, a positive attitude, and recognise the differences of the recipient. In this session, we will be looking at communication within leadership, sharing some tips and advice on how to communicate efficiently, effectively and helpfully.

Speakers: Tim Simmonds & Tom O’Toole – Tim & Tom are part of the senior leadership team of Christ Church in Manchester and they manage churchwide communication across six congregations in five locations, as well as serving churches and facilitating church planting in the UK and beyond. 

March 9th 2018 - The Art of Delegation

The Art of Delegation

One of the key skills of leadership is delegation. Nobody can do everything themselves, so it is crucial to be able to determine what tasks to delegate, who to deleagte them to and how to manage this process. In this session, we learn the key skills needed to delegate well.

Speaker: Keith Gamon – Keith  is the leader of Christ Central Church in Manchester, and previously planted Silklife Church in Macclesfield. 

April 26th-27th 2017 - Worship, Creativity and Culture

Topic TBC

In this 24 hour residential, Simon Brnding will talk about worship, creativity and culture. In particular he will help us consider how we create a culture of apprenticing for our worship teams and approach the creative culture around us in our towns and cities. .

Speakers: Simon Brading – Simon heads up the worship at the New Day Festival and is a leader at Emmanuel Church in Brighton (formerly known as CCK).

June 22nd 2018 - Conflict Resolution
Conflict Resolution

Despite all the best intentions, conflict is inevitable in any organisation. Depending how that conflict is handled, it has the potential to derail the progress of the mission, or to serve as a catalyst for greater unity and respect and open new doors of opportunity. In this session, Bryn looks at how we can handle conflicts that arise.

Speaker: Bryn Hughes – Bryn is a consultant in church leadership and church management, and works with churches and movements all over the world to help them lead better.
