The Basic Essentials of Christian Leadership


No course can teach you to be an effective leader.

However, there are some
      basic leadership essentials
which can be learnt.




Richard Wallis - executive director of
Mission Possible UK - would have found these essentials invaluable if he had known them at a younger age when he was in senior leadership positions ...
... first in a rural development project in Zambia in the 1970’s ...
... and after that leading large teams in Christian organisations in the United Kingdom in the 1980’s and 1990’s.


Over the past 10 years having read many books on leadership, Richard has taught these basic essentials at many conferences throughout Africa.

Now, he has sought to condense all this wisdom into a short summary ...
... and present it in an easily accessible format.



The material is designed for:
  • Both emerging next generation leaders keen to learn basic principles ...
         ...  and for established leaders as they seek to sharpen up their leadership skills     [Proverbs 27.17]
  • Both personal ...  and group use
  • Either for use over a period of several weeks ...  or at one extended session

 eight There are 8 modules:
  • What Is Leadership?
  • Mission, Vision and Values
  • Team building
  • Conflict Resolution

  • The Character of a Leader
  • Strategy, planning and communication
  • Time management
  • Review and Feedback


This training course - which is thoroughly Bible-based - is more than just information.

It includes questions and reflections, as well as many biblical references and helpful quotations

The purpose is to encourage you
   ... firstly to reflect on your leadership style,
       ... and then set yourself goals
            ... to sharpen your leadership skills

" to Him who is able ..."

   Our prayer is that, as you apply these essential truths

        in ways beyond your dreams or imagination.
