Investing in young Baptist leaders

Paul Hobson, the Baptist Times - October 04, 2016

A new programme to invest in young Baptist leaders leaders will launch next March.

Transform will offer participants aged 24-35 growth in Christian discipleship, character and leadership skills in an international setting. This will be achieved through a mix of training, mentoring and networking over a two and a half year period.

The programme is not only for pastors, but lawyers, educators and more, explained Teddy Oprenov, chair of the EBF Younger Leader’s Programme Working Group.

‘It’s for people identified by their Unions as having leadership gifts and who want to become more effective Christian leaders in church and society,’ he said. Eight have already been selected, with hopes that a further four will join them as part of the first intake.

‘Now is the time to invest in younger leaders to help them prepare for key leadership positions beyond their local church in Unions and wider society,’ Teddy continued. ‘Please pray for and claim ownership of Transform.’
