Business Plan

 Leading with Vision workshops focus on the process of  leading effective change in the church, ministry area, or organization. These workshops are applicable to leaders at all levels.  

LEadership workshops designed to challenge and inspire church members to move forward with purpose.

The Essentials of Leadership. Christian leadership development produces life transformation in three areas often referred to the Head (Knowledge), Heart (Character) and Hands (Skills). We view these as the three legs of a stool, each needed for balance and all focused on Christ.  All three need to be developed in every believer.

Heart (Character): A Christ-like character is foundational to the life of a leader.  Character sustains leadership.  When a leader demonstrates consistent integrity, trust is built.  Effective leaders develop Christ-like character as they grow in intimacy with Jesus, leading with the heart of Jesus in their workplace, family and church.

Head (Knowledge): A Christ-like leader has a growing relationship with Jesus and desires to better understand the Bible.  This knowledge needs to be skillfully applied in everyday life. Effective leaders develop knowledge in the Scriptures, self, leadership principles and how that impacts the Great Commission.

Hands (Skills): Christ-like leaders who have the foundation of a Christ-like character, who are growing in their relationship with Jesus, are aware that certain skills are required to work towards a common goal.  The skills of leadership include a wide range of learned abilities including relating to others, leading change, communicating vision, equipping others, and building effective teams.

Church leaders usually find that this workshop leads to further healthy dialogue and implementation of the church vision.

This was, by far, the most productive retreat I've ever been a part of. 

It was good to see firsthand how SCOPE has been leading churches in EMMC to learn about themselves and to move forward with bold vision.


We are looking forward to building on what we started.

the Leading with Vision workshop

This interactive workshop provides practical guidance to effectively lead a group or organization through the process of positive change. The workshop presents a simple framework that captures the complexity of effective leadership. Leaders will learn effective skills in leading their team toward desired outcomes.

The workshop is typically delivered over 10 to 12 hours, over a weekend or series of evenings. Before the workshop each participant must complete an online assessment. During the workshop participants will receive their personalized Everything DiSC Work of Leaders Profile. Upon completion of the workshop access is provided to which allows participants to create free Comparison Reports with team members.

We draw in leadership lessons from the book of Nehemiah, as well as church growth concepts. The workshop is highly interactive, allowing individuals to learn from each other, as well as identify concerns and needs within the leadership team. Dialogue invariably continues beyond the workshop toward implementation of God’s vision for the church. The group workshop may be followed by individual coaching with a certified coach to enhance understanding and application.

Participants will gain practical insight about:

• Their God-given DiSC style and how it impacts the way they lead a group of people
• The process of leading a group or organization through effective change
• Personal strengths and challenges within their tendencies in 18 leadership best practices
• Identifying tangible action steps to lead from vision to effective outcomes
• The current dynamics and challenges within the organization
