Leadership

Discovering, developing, and deploying transformational leaders

About the Leadership Ministry

People and places rise and fall on leadership. Poor leadership limits who we are and what we do. The importance of finding and raising up transformational Christian leaders for the good of people and the glory of God cannot be understated.

In the Leadership Ministry, we discover, develop, and deploy the potential of people. Even as we deploy a leader in their gift that has been discovered and developed, it isn't fully realized and won't be until the new heaven and earth.

  1. Discover identity, belonging, and purpose.
  2. Develop leadership potential through focused discipleship and resources.
  3. Deploy the potential of leaders to fulfill their Kingdom purpose.

“So we, though many, are one body in Christ, and individually members one of another. Having gifts that differ according to the grace given to us, let us use them: if prophecy, in proportion to our faith; if service, in our serving; the one who teaches, in his teaching; the one who exhorts, in his exhortation; the one who contributes, in generosity; the one who leads, with zeal; the one who does acts of mercy, with cheerfulness.” –Romans 12:5–8

Leadership Pipeline

“And he gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the shepherds and teachers, to equip the saints for the work of ministry...” –Ephesians 4:11-12


Every believer is called to do the work of ministry, but leaders must also be able to equip others for the work of ministry. Growing in leadership means growing in responsibility to serve others through discovering their unique potential, developing it, and deploying it for ministry.

Volunteers serve on a ministry team and are the frontlines of ministry and ministry support. They provide constructive feedback to leaders.

Leaders guide a group of volunteers, students, Bible study participants, group members, etc. They teach and lead others to align and execute ministry strategy to accomplish mission and vision. They provide prayer and general care for those in their group and provide constructive feedback to directors.

Directors lead an entire area of ministry. They design or align strategy for their specific ministry area to accomplish mission and vision. They provide prayer and general care for leaders and recruit potential leaders. They develop leaders in their ministry area on specific competencies and provide constructive feedback to TVC’s executive directors and elders.
