We believe that all Christians are missional people who actively participate in God’s kingdom work. Every Christian communicates and lives out the gospel in her or his own context, work and family environment.
Regardless of whether you are serving in the “classic” vocations of pastor, youth worker, chaplain, counsellor and cross-cultural worker or whether you are a change agent in the medical area, business world, education sector, in politics, social entrepreneurship, and many other areas; if you seek to be “salt of the earth”, and long to effectively integrate faith and work in your own context: This program is for you!
The Thriving Christian Leader Program consists of 5 workshops on 5 half-Saturdays throughout 2020. The workshops are designed to be undertaken in one year and in chronological order.
We pursue a cross-disciplinary approach that is designed to contribute to learning by facilitating interactions that may not otherwise naturally occur within your normal vocational settings.
Transformational learning is key and happens through our “Thrive Groups”: Here, we provide the opportunity for you to connect with one another in and between the workshops. You exchange creative ideas and experiences about how to apply best the content in real life.
Each workshop is facilitated by several members of our expert team.
