Equipping for Leadership

The Training Center is the tangible expression of one of the three guiding metaphors that best describes the vision and mission of Fellowship; namely, that Fellowship is a “greenhouse,” a “training center,” and a “launching pad.” The necessary link between the greenhouse and launching pad is The Training Center where people are prepared and equipped for leadership in life and ministry.

Partnerships

CONNECTIONS FOR INFLUENCE

Through the Training Center, Fellowship partners with church, non-profit and marketplace leaders to focus on health that fuels growth. We help leaders foster health and trust through a team-based approach to development and improvement. We help leaders maintain clarity as to organizational mission, core values and alignment. We help leaders develop a strategic planning process based on a 5 year dream, 2 years of solid thought leadership, and a concise 1 year plan. We help leaders target 4 key areas of focus that promote health and multiplication.

We do all this in four distinct contexts:

Consulting: We connect leaders for the purpose of sharing advice, insight and best practices.
Coaching: We team up with leaders for the purpose of focused coaching and mentoring in acquiring knowledge and skill in leadership health and multiplication, character development and greater passion for God.
Foxholes: We gather leaders in cohorts, in exceptional settings to experience the empowering presence of Christ together. Leadership Foxholes provide leaders the chance to get out of the line fire with a few trusted allies for soul care, clarity and direction.
Strategic Partnerships: We partner with organizations to advance a shared mission for the glory of God and the good of others.

Planting

MULTIPLYING CHURCHES

The church planting and multiplication division of the Training Center exists to serve each Fellowship congregation and partner churches in the multiplication of leaders and church plants committed to changing the heart and soul of Northwest Arkansas and the world.

The Training Center produces and releases the next generation of spiritual leaders at Fellowship through our Leadership Multiplication Pipeline. As an extension of Fellowship’s mission we intentionally provide emerging leaders opportunities for leadership development and coaching beginning as early as high school.
