Congregational Leadership Training is a training program of the Lutheran Church of Australia (LCA) for leaders like you. Hosted by Grassroots Training, a ministry of Australian Lutheran College, the program addresses two key objectives within the LCA Strategic Direction 2013–2018 approved by General Synod in 2013:
In approving the LCA Strategic Direction, Synod delegates recognised that without the functions of governance and leadership, our call to Grow as God’s people and Go as God’s people will be harder to fulfil. Leaders like you enable your congregation members, pastor and other mission and ministry leaders/workers to do what they are called to do.
That’s why it’s important that you are trained and equipped as you perform your important supporting roles.
Congregational Leadership Training (CLT) starts with ‘Foundations’, an introductory unit for all your office-holders and leaders. There are also specific units for chairpersons, secretaries and treasurers. Congregational Leadership Training is delivered online, so you can start anytime, anywhere, that suits your leadership teams.
The training package includes the following units:
Introductory unit for all key office-holders and leaders in congregations
Specific training for chairpersons
Specific training for secretaries
Specific training for treasurers
Refresher – to enable congregational leaders to reconnect with their initial training for ongoing learning.
Note: Congregational Leadership Training units are available to all members of the LCA.
