As the millennium dawned, a group of visionary leaders from around the world identified the eight core values of the most effective Christian leaders. They wrote a dynamic curriculum and created strategies to develop leaders that could be used in conferences, small groups, and online to build these values in the lives of Christians around the world.
Ten years later, over 100,000 alumni in more than 200 nations testify that these core values have CHANGED THEIR LIVES.
Each core value is a significant foundation for life and leadership. The greatest value, however, comes from the integration of all eight values into a person’s life. Those values are:
Intimacy with God
God looks for consecrated men and women who lead out of an intimate relationship with God.
Passion for the Harvest
God looks for men and women who share a passion for those without Christ. Jesus came to “seek and to save that which was
lost.” God desires that everyone be reached with the life transforming power of the Gospel.
God looks for men and women, who are biblically committed to cast vision, set goals, mobilize the Body of Christ, and
overcome obstacles in order to reach the nations for Christ.
Culturally Relevant Evangelism
God looks for men and women who live and teach the Gospel with cultural relevance, sensitivity and power, so that the eternal
truth of the Gospel will be understood and received in every culture of the world.
Multiplication of Leaders
God looks for men and women who disciple, coach, and mentor other leaders, who in turn become leaders of leaders that
effectively train others.
God looks for men and women who are convinced that the family is God’s building block for society and make their family a
priority in developing leaders.
God looks for men and women who are faithful stewards of finances, time, and spiritual gifts in their personal lives and
leadership with the result that people are reached with the Gospel.
God looks for men and women of integrity who live holy lives that are accountable to God and to the Body of Christ. Integrity
glorifies God, protects leaders from stumbling, and encourages growth.
