As we finish up this academic year, we are going to be sharing some of our most viewed posts in the last year. Here is our most-viewed post this year...
We are excited to let you know about a new phase in the growth of Living Leadership’s ministries, and how we hope it might enable us to serve more Christian leaders, their spouses and churches or organisations.
In recent years, we have seen significant growth in the number of leaders, spouses and churches we are able to support. In the last financial year alone, we were able to support more than 350 leaders from around 200 churches. And yet, we are aware that many more leaders, spouses and churches do not know about the support available for them.
Following an unexpected and generous donation, we have been able to set aside some money to employ three part-time “Ministry Development Leads” for three years to develop ministries and expand our support in three key areas: the Midlands, the South of England and Women in Ministry. Whilst there are many other regions that we could have devoted energy to, and hope to in future, we are looking forward to being able to serve more people in these areas through One-to-Ones, Refreshment Days and other ministries as we deem necessary.
Phil Sweeting will be the Ministry Development Lead for the Midlands, Graham Cooke for the South of England and Melinda Hendry for Women in Ministry. Phil and Graham are already in post, with Melinda starting later this month.
If you’d like to find out a bit more about them you can do so on our website, or we recently interviewed Phil on our podcast about his life, ministry and what he hopes for this role. You can listen to that on a podcast app of choice (search Living Leadership) or on our website.
We will be doing similar interviews with Graham and Melinda in the coming months.
Please pray for them as they take up these new posts, and for the rest of the staff team as we reconfigure after this growth.
