God uses leaders to further His Kingdom – we see this throughout the Bible and throughout history. Any project, church, ministry or movement is only as strong as its leadership, and all fail when leadership is lacking. Sadly many in leadership don’t have a clear vision for where God is leading them, and many don’t possess the spiritual depth or leadership skills to lead others forward.

One Rock trains people in spiritual leadership to help them fulfil God’s vision for their lives. We provide life-changing resources in four streams; Spiritual Formation, Discerning Vision, Leadership Skills and Global Mission, to help people know God better, know His vision for the future, and know how to lead others into that future. We teach spiritual leadership with the bible as our core text, supplemented by the best models from business and academia. We then integrate these lessons with stories from the great missionary leaders of history, with personal coaching from great spiritual leaders of today, and through relationships with others who are following God’s call.

Our Academy of Spiritual Leadership helps young adults in major cities to deepen their spiritual life, clarify their vision, sharpen their leadership and broaden their network. Our Remarkable Lives biography series shares stories and teaches lessons from the great missionary leaders of history – imagine being mentored by the giants from church history. Our Workshop Series develops the spiritual leadership capacity of churches and organisations.

We work in partnerships to achieve more. We have worked alongside Lifeshape International for ten years; they send some of the top Chick-fil-A executives and franchise owners to coach young leaders on our Academies. Our Remarkable Lives biography series is published by Authentic Media. Across Africa we work with the Bible Society and are part of the African Biblical Leadership Initiative. In the UK we partner with Methodist Evangelicals Together to resource churches, and with Fresh Expressions to network and train pioneer church leaders. In London we are part of the London Mission Collective, and we regularly host events with A Call To Business and the Sanctuary community.

Onyi Ifinnwa graduated from the London Academy in July 2016.


“I could not recommend it more wholeheartedly – it’s changed the very direction of my life… It has given me fresh vision, strengthened my relationship with God, provided me with loving Christian friends and taught me incredible leadership skills. The quality of the training material was excellent. Anyone thinking of joining the Academy next year should be prepared for a life changing experience!”
