Definite game-changer. Life changing actually… The Academy shaped the foundation of our business, made us up our game and gave us the tools so that we now enjoy leadership.
The Academy is a one year experience that supports you in fulfilling God’s vision for your life. It will deepen your spiritual life, clarify your vision, sharpen your leadership and broaden your network.
The Academy is ideal for missionary entrepreneurs; for business owners, church planters, social entrepreneurs, youth workers, artists, political activists – for people leading or pioneering Kingdom ventures. It runs from October 2019 to July 2020, and hosts a unique combination of features.
60 hours of content, covering the best training available on spiritual formation, discerning vision and leadership skills. These concepts are then applied to the lives of Jesus, of biblical characters and of missionary leaders from history, to see how they lived them out.
Ten coaching conversations, so one per month, with an older and more experienced leader, helping you to apply to your life all the concepts you will learn. Our coaches are successful Christian leaders drawn from business, the church and the charity sectors.
Eight evening community gatherings over the year, providing encouragement, accountability, advice and prayer. Members can also join the wider London alumni community, and a global alumni community of leaders from different cities around the world.
Copies of the One Rock Remarkable Lives biographies, featuring stories and lessons on how John Wesley, Hudson Taylor, Amy Carmichael and William Wilberforce became such influential missionary leaders. These biographies supplement and ‘flesh out’ the training content.
A PEAKS personality profile, helping you understand how your unique personality impacts your spiritual formation and your leadership style. PEAKS is a 5-factor personality model based on the latest academic personality research, and developed by Research Communication in Singapore.
Our partnership with Lifeshape provides training and coaching input from Chick-fil-A, a privately owned US restaurant company with an annual turnover of c. $8 billion, run on biblical values, and with great resources to share in the areas of servant leadership and building high performance teams.
Out of previous Academies charities have been formed, churches planted, missional coffee shops opened, new youth events birthed, online ministries begun, residential discipleship centres set up and safe houses for trafficked women created.
Additionally, Academy alumni are also serving as overseas missionaries, as advisors to foreign heads of state, and with major responsibilities within the UK civil service.

If you are serious about Christian leadership and you are struggling in your role/ identity as a leader, this training will totally open your eyes to a world of opportunities you possess. Very enlightening.
The Academy is a great opportunity to work out what your vision is more deeply, and clearly pick up useful skills and find practical ways to deepen your spiritual practice and relationship with God. It’s practical, helpful and relevant to a range of situations… You gain the most from the course if you are willing to put the effort in, but if you do you will learn and grow so much!
I have graduated from two universities and got degrees in international business management and in economics, finance and management, but this was a great learning journey with God and has made me a much better leader professionally as well as personally. You will gain absolutely clear vision and learn all the skills to be a great and respected leader and communicator.
The total value of the London Academy package of resources is £5000. We are offering places for £895.
This flexible and superb training is ideal for busy, gifted young people in your congregation… the material is great and the presentation/ delivery is professional.
Practical, insightful, and delivered and presented with impressive excellence.
I have seen how first-hand how One Rock has helped our team step into the leadership that God has for them. I recommend One Rock wholeheartedly.
