Module 1: Leadership and Priesthood

Priesthood translates into leadership. Power and authority have a spiritual basis. Every profession or discipline takes its cue from the practice of priesthood. Political and economic fabrics of nations are shaped by one form of priesthood or the other. Society is therefore a function of the priesthood that is exercised by the leaders and that influences the populace. Priests determine the spiritual, economic, social and political climate of society. A study of biblical priesthood prepares Christians to function effectively in public and private sector.

Module 2: Leadership and Prayer

Consecration, devotion and biblical leadership are intertwined concepts. Jesus raised leaders in the place of prayer. Men who transformed cities, cultures and generations were rooted and disciplined in prayer. We cannot improve on this strategy that Jesus employed. It is in the place of effective prayer that Christian Character is developed. Also structures of darkness which enslave peoples and seduce nations can be overthrown. Prayer opens the heavens for us to receive development strategies for territories and raise relevant God fearing leaders. Prayer closets have produced leaders of trans-generational wisdom and grace both in the private and public sector. A Christian leader must learn to wrestle with God until Christ is formed in him or her and destiny is released. A prayerful Christian leader will find answers to community problems and ensure that God’s will is done on earth as it is in heaven.

Module 3: Strongholds and Bondages

The Bible teaches that peoples and territories can be subject to demonic bondages. Such bondages determine the politics, economy, social as well as spiritual climate in which people function. A leader’s major responsibility lies in his or her ability and skill in dealing with these bondages. This can also determine the scope and reach of the gospel in such society. Again, covenants made with powers of darkness can affect Christian leaders adversely if they are not adequately tackled. Is it possible that powers of darkness already have established agents who seek to control the same territory that we believers seek to transform?

Module 4: Prophetic Perspectives in Leadership

There is a growing hunger for prophetic clarity within the church as well as the need to separate the “soulish” from the “Spiritual”.  These series will explore the various forms of the ministry of Prophecy, Prophets and the prophetic. Peoples and whole generations perish for lack of vision. This module presents the timeless purposes of God and supplies direction to leaders, preventing the tragedy of the blind leading the blind. The vision for God’s purposes in every generation and nation is embedded in God’s word and is revealed by the Spirit to all who wish to build according to His pattern. It is essential for leaders to take hold of the plan of heaven and build according to divine pattern. Leaders need to become facilitators of what God seeks to accomplish in this dispensation on the earth. These series of lessons supply the preparations necessary for a potential leader.

Module 5: Biblical Leadership

Here we focus on biblical principles of leadership and the effect of culture on the development of nations. The call to follow is a call to leadership. Judgement is viewed as an on-going assessment. A biblical alternative to the world system is proffered so that nations are built on enduring principles according to the revealed purposes of the Almighty. Leaders are held accountable by God for action, inaction, policies, and cross cultural and international relations because the earth is the Lord’s and all its fullness.
