    • 63% of pastors reported they spent more time mentoring

      • 86% of EM Phase participants place high value on their mentoring experience

    • Pastors reported LC grads would be:

      • Considered as P.T. or F.T. staff members – 100%

Input from pastors1

Input from Pastors

  • Exploring New Ministry Opportunities – Themes

    • There is a great degree of intensity and focus for ministry on the part of those who have gone through the LC process

    • They are more deliberate about what they participate in and more thoughtful about the vision and direction of the church

    • Participants are zeroing in on their giftedness and being far more effective

    • We’ve seen emerging leaders step up to ministry more readily and eagerly

North American Baptist Conference, 2006


Input from pastors2

Input from Pastors

  • Impact on the Local Church

    • Mentoring culture has been established

    • Grads joining church staff

    • Increased commitment to existing ministries and programming

    • Development of new ministries

    • Preparing for, or entering vocational ministry

    • Grads embracing leadership roles on governing boards and committees

    • EM Phase as pre-req for those being considered for future church leadership roles

North American Baptist Conference, 2006


Input from pastors3

Input from Pastors

  • Impact on Individual Participants

    • “Finishing well” part of the lingua franca

    • Every student that has kept involved has felt the benefits

    • Participants are “spreading the word” to others in the church

    • EN leaders experiencing push/pull as they feel God’s call on their lives in areas not currently part of existing ministries and programming – a challenge for the church and the pastor

    • “(The LC process) is not just another program. It is a way of doing church.”

North American Baptist Conference, 2006


Input enriching phase grads

Input Enriching Phase Grads

  • Statistical Data

    • A group of 20 would not produce meaningful statistical information, so the focus was on uncovering thematic insights from open-ended questions

North American Baptist Conference, 2006


Input enriching phase grads1

Input Enriching Phase Grads

  • Impact on Individual Participants – Entire LCTM Experience

    • God’s unique way of developing disciples individually

    • Value of the learning community

    • The “journey-nature” of the Christian experience

    • The servant-nature of leadership

      • Developing others

      • Spiritual authority

      • “Particularizing” others

North American Baptist Conference, 2006

Concluding comments and observations nab perspective

Concluding Comments and Observations (NAB Perspective)

  • Only Two “Non-Negotiable” elements of the LCTM

    • Faithfulness to the curriculum

    • Faithfulness to the process

North American Baptist Conference, 2006


Different approaches similar outcomes nab perspective

Different Approaches …Similar Outcomes (NAB Perspective)

  • Less Critical than Initially Thought …

    • The necessity for a cohort of churches

    • The necessity to attend events and experiences

    • The necessity for supplemental texts

    • The necessity for kick-off and graduation events

    • The necessity for every participating church to have a representative on the A-Team

      Other components of the Model may or may not be included with little effect on outcomes as long as the local Leadership Center remains faithful to the curriculum and the process.

North American Baptist Conference, 2006


Common themes observed in all most leadership centers

Common Themes Observed in All/Most Leadership Centers

  • A High Level of Commitment is Required (All Levels)

  • Sr. Pastor Commitment is Critical (Personal Participation is Ideal)

  • Transition to “In Addition to Leading, Developing Others to Lead” is a Difficult Cultural Change

  • Not Just Another Program – A Way of Doing Church

  • Cost (Several Approaches by NAB are being taken)

  • A-Teams – Various Structures, but Always a Critical Contribution

  • One Size Does Not Fit All – The LCTM May Not be Equally Effective in Every Context (Though Acknowledged as Highly Adaptable)
