Formation is Living Leadership's dynamic training programme for church apprentices, interns, trainees and junior ministers.
What is formation?
Formation is Living Leadership's dynamic training programme aimed at junior leaders which places a strong, distinctive emphasis on grace-based character for leadership. It has a track record of complementing church and regional training schemes across the UK and its two-conference programme has been developing biblical leaders with servant hearts who know the love and grace of God in their lives and ministries since 2006.
What is Distinctive About Formation?
Formation places a unique emphasis on building grace-based character for leadership. We want to help young leaders know the love and grace of God in their lives and ministries. A strong focus on the power and significance of the cross of Christ in their lives is central to the development of their practical and theological skills.
Formation also places a high value on equipping trainees with strong ministry and Bible skills. The programme provides an opportunity for churches to collaborate in training. Most of the training is delivered by leaders from participating churches joining together to give trainees a great start in ministry.
What Do Delegates Gain From Formation?
Formation gives trainee leaders the best possible start in ministry, building growth in grace and godliness, Bible-handling and ministry skills. Attendees will receive from experienced pastors and trainers who share not only their skills and ministry experience but themselves.
The Formation programme consists of two conferences in September and March. The practical training covers many aspects of ministry.
How Does Formation Work With Other Training Delivered by a Church?
Formation is designed to compliment the training schemes of participating churches. Leaders from the churches are warmly invited to help shape the development of the programme to best serve the needs of their church and are always welcome to the conferences.
Participating churches enjoy the benefits of working together to train junior leaders and develop partnership for sharing skills, resources and best practice.
Formation trainees have to book through their church and with the church’s full commitment and approval.
