Developing Female Leaders (Kadi Cole)

If you’re like most church leaders, you feel the tension between the vision God has called you to fulfill and the number of leaders helping you get there. Yet there is a reservoir of untapped leadership potential sitting dormant in your church. Why? Experienced church leader and organizational expert, Kadi Cole, decided to find out.

Through interviews with thirty high-level female and male church leaders and surveys from over 1200 female ministry leaders from across the globe, Kadi’s research revealed The Eight Best Practices that leaders can implement to start accessing and maximizing the potential of women in their church. 

Positive, practical, and applicable in any theological setting, this step-by-step guide will walk you and your team through up-to-date research, powerful discussion questions, and developing an action plan to move your church forward. 

Within the first chapter you will begin to see how you can navigate the minefields and make a difference in your church and with the women you serve alongside. Developing Female Leaders takes away the mystery and shows you how!

The 4 Dimensions of Extraordinary Leadership (Jenni Catron)

You have the capacity to become an extraordinary leader—if you are willing to embrace a deeper definition of leadership and take action to apply it. In The 4 Dimensions of Extraordinary Leadership, Jenni Catron, executive church leader and author of Clout, reveals the secrets to standout leadership found in the Great Commandment: “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.”

Join Bloom @ Exponential

Exponential is the world’s largest church planting conference (awesome!) – but besides the conference itself, Stadia brings together its “village” at the Orlando event to help provide the community we all need to thrive, grow, and multiply! With events designed with the Stadia community in mind, discounts on conference tickets and hotel rooms, and plenty of time to connect with and be encouraged by other leaders, it’s no wonder that Stadia at Exponential is one of the most encouraging parts of our year!

Exploring Church Planting?

Starting a church is one of the most fulfilling – and difficult! – things you will ever do. But did you know that 66% of new churches don’t make it to full self-sufficiency within 4 years? Often, this is because the new church leader is:

  • not truly called to start a church
  • not yet ready to start a church
  • lacks the skills needed to successfully start a church

Though the stats are daunting, with prayer, wise counsel, and some reflection, you can understand who God created you to be, what God created you to be doing, and what your current assignment is.

Stadia’s Discovery Center can help you discern your own calling, readiness, and competency to be successful as the leader of a new church!
