Leadership Development

At Stonebrook, we are committed to developing leaders who are equipped to lead others toward loving God and all people by living, proclaiming, and teaching the gospel of Jesus, God’s Messiah. We use several tools to accomplish this.


Great Commission Leadership Institute (GCLI)

Our own church association has developed curriculum that we use, known as the Great Commision Leadership Institute (GCLI). To view some GCLI resources, visit http://www.gccweb.org/media-resources/gcli-resources-papers.


BILD Leadership Series

The BILD Leadership Series (produced by BILD International) has a strong focus on learning from the Scriptures in community within the local church and applying what is learned directly to ministry.

From BILD:

The Leadership Series is a collection of resources designed to help local church leaders, missionaries, and pastors develop leaders to strengthen and expand the church worldwide. The Leadership Series is an excellent tool for equipping a wide spectrum of church leaders, including those pursuing roles as pastors, missionaries, evangelists, and church planters.


BILD First Principles Series

The BILD First Principles Series is a less rigorous leadership development series that we take a broader group of ministry leaders through.

From BILD:

The First Principles Series is a set of 13, six-session, dialogue-based Bible study guides for use by church leaders and mature Christians to establish believers and churches in the faith. Rather than a typical fill-in-the-blank approach, the series employs a highly effective learning process involving biblical passages and readings, community dialogue, and personal reflection and projects. Teaching core principles of Christ and His Apostles, this series guides participants in becoming firmly established in their faith.
