We help leaders learn to live and lead like Jesus, by practising three rhythms of personal development:

1. Weekly Prayer: We ask team members to pray for their congregations – once every week.
2. Monthly Training: We ask all leaders to attend six initial training sessions – once every month.
3. Learning Communities: We ask all teams to gather together for a retreat day – once every six months.


The monthly training sessions take place in St. James’ House (L1 7BY), starting with a meal together at 6:00pm, and finishing by 9:00pm. See below for 2019 session dates.

After the initial six months of training have been completed, they are replaced by monthly coaching with Incumbents, and quarterly reviews with the Joshua Centre Director.

We are grateful to Frank Hinds (from Transforming Wigan) for coming up with the original ideas behind our approach to leadership development.
