LEADERSHIP | Residency

About the LEADERSHIP | Residency


The LEADERSHIP | Residency is a 4 week aggressive discipleship experience to develop young leaders in the Georgia District through inspiring discussions and classroom sessions with district leadership, and practical ministry experience with the Summer Camp leadership team in a fast paced, high impact environment.


The LEADERSHIP |Residency is about:

ABIDING: We place a disproportionate value on intimacy with Jesus as it will define us and guide us in all we do. Each day's best is realized when it includes extravagant time in his presence. Abiding in Him personally and Corporately allows us to bear much fruit (John 15).

RELATIONSHIPS:  Family atmosphere is important to us; we will intentionally nurture it. We will shower love and affirmation on our students and each other. Time should be taken together for celebrations, prayer and just having fun. This affirmation flows into our relationships with others. We will praise, encourage, believe in and rejoice with each other.

LEARNING: We will always maintain a posture of learning. We seek to learn from everyone and incorporate a variety of influences into our methodology. This helps us grow in our understanding of God, life and culture in order to effectively lift up salvation through Jesus.

SERVICE: We will go above and beyond to give sacrificially to the work of God in our community. We will set impossible goals, take bold steps of faith and watch God move.

EXCELLENCE: Excellence, not average is our measure. We believe simplicity enables excellence and we will value creating experiences that will boldly glorify Jesus and attract people far from Him. We unapologetically measure success with all available quantitative and qualitative means.

PENTECOST: The baptism in the Holy Spirit empowers us for witness. As the Spirit fills us, his power overflows into every area of our lives, affecting all we think, say and do. We therefore boldly proclaim Jesus everywhere and to everyone, believing miraculous signs will follow.  The  Spirit equips us with gifts to fulfill our mission. We will regularly pray  and exercise all the authority afforded to believers in Jesus' name. We affirm our wholehearted dependence on the Holy Spirit.

ACCOUNTABILITY: Authority is God-placed and essential to who we are. We will respect, honor and obey our authorities, considering them God's means of protection, counsel and covering.

CHARACTER: Who we are will drive what we do. Integrity, humility and authenticity are just as important as competence.
