Leadership is influence, nothing more and nothing less. It is the skill that can unlock the potential in any situation. Leadership is amoral; it can be used for good or for evil purposes, and the same skills can be employed for both ends. However, while the skills remain the same, Christian leadership is distinctive in the unique values that Jesus brought to the subject through his teaching and example.

The One Rock curriculum covers what leadership is, takes an in-depth look at some of the crucial skills involved (such as Planning, Communication, Building Teams and Coaching), and also explores the values of Jesus relevant to leadership.
