If you have influence with others, you are a leader! Westwood Community Church is committed to inspiring and releasing Christian leadership within our church community to help us accomplish our mission and vision. Our Wellspring Ministry offers leadership training, development and resources that invests in biblical leaders.
Wellspring helps leaders lead well
There are four primary leadership activities Wellspring engages in to help develop leadership capacity within the church: Discovery, Development, Connection, and Support.
Discovery: Involves identifying potential high capacity leaders from within the congregation. Through casual meetings and personal discussions with Westwood volunteers, members and attenders, people with a willingness and ability to lead are identified and encouraged to begin a leadership development track within Wellspring.
Development: Through a series of Transformational Leadership classes centered on Westwood’s 4R leadership model, leaders learn the practical skills required to lead teams in a godly fashion. Classes introduce leaders to Westwood’s leadership context, offer leaders a chance to get help with important leadership topics and provide personal support related to leading a specific team.
Connection: Is the process of matching the right leader candidate to the right ministry within the church. As the church grows, leaders are matched to ministries they are passionate about and where they are most equipped. Wellspring acts as the conduit between the increasing demand for leadership and the pool of qualified, trained leaders God has given us.
Support: Every great leader needs support. Leading can be challenging and Westwood takes leadership support seriously. Westwood leaders are supported through annual events, social networks and a continuous flow of ideas and communications on the latest tools designed to help leaders lead more effectively. Leaders are also introduced to The Well, a single source of information and support materials utilized by Westwood leaders.
The result of these activities is a group of spiritually mature, theologically aligned, highly competent and capable leaders who are equipped to lead Westwood ministries in an independent, yet coordinated way.
