Leadership Development Institute

Church-Based Leadership Development

We believe that churches are uniquely equipped and commissioned for the work of raising-up future Kingdom leaders. This is because leadership development in a church context allows for an ongoing 360º view of the leader’s life by staff, peers, and members of the congregation in a variety of settings.

The Leadership Development Institute (LDI) is a ministry of Hope Community Church designed to equip all followers of Christ to explore and grow in leadership, biblical thinking, Christ-like character, and ministry skills for service both inside and outside the church.
