Great teaching… genuinely brilliant mentors… input from successful business people… networking with leaders in similar situations.
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 2018 to July 2019, 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.
