    Leadership Development Team

    The Leadership Development Team exists as a resource to equip and encourage Christ-like leaders. We have many coaches and facilitators throughout the US and Canada who believe “good leadership is like a channel of water controlled by God. He directs it wherever He chooses.” These coaching leaders consist of North American Mission Board staff, Southern Baptist national, state and local staff, local church pastors, and seminary professors who believe and practice the principles being taught. Our primary focus is to help leaders align themselves with God’s direction for their lives.
