LEADING UPWARDS: HELPING YOU TURN VISION INTO REALITY

Our Story

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. A major problem is that 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 towards fulfilling that vision.

In today’s world young leaders all around the globe need new kingdom lenses to discern things and see what is possible; they need direction, courage to live deep and meaningful lives, and competence to lead and respond to the upward call of God in their lives. Young leaders often feel ill equipped, isolated and overwhelmed, they struggled with anxiety about the future and are driven by current trends rather than eternal truths.

One Rock exists to inspire leaders to build their lives upon the strong foundation of Jesus’ Kingdom. We see a new generation of leaders who are missionary entrepreneurs pioneering new churches, businesses, social enterprises, charities, mission organisations and justice campaigns. Leaders who are planted in supportive communities that build trust and encourage collaboration. Our vision is to create a movement around the world of Spirit-led leaders representing all walks of life serving God, changing their local context and having global impact.

How amazing this program is for someone who is seeking that next level in their relationship with Christ. Seeing and pursuing God’s vision for their life!

Enlightening… I can build a successful, Godly business… A lot of the content helped me think a lot more about entrepreneurship and leadership in that context.

Emmanuel Agoro, London

I learned a lot about how to know if my vision comes from God, and about leadership, how to lead a team in a good way, and how to live out Jesus’ values.

A Good Plan

What’s the difference between a good plan and a poor plan? For me, a good plan is a bit like a newspaper article’s first paragraph… it answers six key questions. For a time in my youth I wanted to be a journalist, and learned that the first paragraph of an article...
