Churches grow and reach more people for Jesus with humble, hungry, and healthy leaders. We want to develop and multiply healthy leaders in ministry and the marketplace. Jesus instructed His church to pray for more workers to serve in advancing His kingdom, 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 six years ago, we’ve had 32 residents graduate, eight of whom are still on staff full-time at Traders Point.
  • We’re currently developing our Traders Point Leadership College, which is a two-year, accredited ministerial leadership degree program. 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 2021, our current leadership development for staff and residents will expand to volunteer leaders and team coaches 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. Everything rises and falls on leadership, and 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.
