Mission Central Leadership Cohort

Why do so many Christian leaders flame out, even when they’re young? The stories of moral failure or burnout that we hear with heartbreaking regularity are symptomatic of a deeper problem. If you’re stepping into leadership, it’s not uncommon to feel like you don’t know how to connect your work to your life with God in a way that’s healthy, sustainable, and real.

The Mission Central Leadership Cohort equips participants to lead from the heart—fueling their efforts with a life-giving connection to Jesus Christ. Each cohort includes 8-12 leaders in the first ten years out of college, gathered from both ministry and marketplace contexts. These leaders meet once a month to talk, pray, and learn together about spiritual formation and leadership. Over time, participants become one another’s confidants, trusted friends who support and challenge one another in the difficult but rewarding work of Christian leadership.

Discussions are facilitated by Mission Central Team Leader Chris Easley. Chris has led leadership cohorts at Church of the Resurrection and the Chicago Campus Initiative in the past, and integrates theological and educational approaches to make each session count as a catalyst for life and leadership change.

Our next cohort begins in 2021. To receive an application, please contact us.
