Churches grow and reach more people for Jesus with humble, hungry, and healthy leaders. We want to develop and multiply healthy disciples and effective leaders in the church and the marketplace. Jesus instructed His church to pray for more workers to serve in advancing His kingdom (Matthew 9:37), and we believe our vision for leadership development is a key to God answering this prayer.

  • In 2019, we launched a leadership development program to raise up new leaders in ministry, and we hired our first leadership development director.
  • Our leadership residency is an immersive ministry training program that seeks to bridge the gap between real-world experience and classroom knowledge. Since starting the program seven years ago, we’ve had 40 residents graduate, ten of whom are still on staff full-time at Traders Point.
  • Traders Point Leadership College, offering two-year, accredited ministerial leadership degrees, will launch in August 2022. Students attending the college will gain an associate of arts degree, as well as real-world experience through internships at the church—all at a third of the cost of a traditional Christian university.
  • In 2022, all of our leadership development opportunities currently available to staff, volunteer leaders, and team coaches will be offered to all volunteer team members across all of our campuses in all department areas. This includes our leadership conference and other training opportunities that will equip them to be better leaders in their ministries, workplaces, and homes.

We can’t advance God’s mission without developing leaders—leaders who serve, mentor, and disciple others to be healthy disciples and effective leaders themselves (2 Timothy 2:2). It’s our desire to develop a world class leadership development framework to raise up the next generation of leaders to advance God’s mission.
