We are pleased to announce that the Leadership Development Course (LDC) for SE Asia, will be hosted here again in Thailand in 2013.
The leadership development course is 6 weeks of teaching input, discussion in class and mentoring groups, modelling, practical application and prayer into effective leadership. Its all about you as a leader developing yourself and then others on your team. Or as Ephesians 4 puts it, "Equipping the saints for the work of ministry."
Following is some general information related to the logistical details of the LDC in Thailand:
"The disciples had 40 days of preparation for the start of their ministry after Jesus ascended and before the Holy Spirit was poured out at Pentecost. I figure that 40 days is a good time for leaders to come away to reflect, receive input and get prepared for the next season of their leadership. So the Leadership Development Course (LDC) was launched - a 40 day (six-week) residential course for leaders of at least four-to-five years experience." -Stephen Mayers, LDC co-founder
During the course of the LDC, we will experience and examine the seven aspects of leadership:
Each week in the LDC is dedicated to a specific theme (or themes), and these goals are presented, processed, exercised, and evaluated through a variety of means including teaching times, peer mentoring groups, small groups, spiritual leadership workshops, one-on-one discussion with a staff member, intercession times, personal ministry times, creative journaling, and worship. Following is a general overview of each of the weekly themes:
The LDC is intended to be a time where we can inspire, encourage, equip, heal, and grow in our calling as leaders. It is not intended to be just a school, but a living experience. It's not complete without you, and we warmly invite you to join with us for this season of renewal in the arms of the Father, following the example of Jesus, and led by authority of the Spirit.
The LDC will be hosted at the Chiang Rai YMCA located in beautiful and peaceful northern Thailand approximately 5 kilometers north of the city of Chiang Rai, and just a few minutes drive from the airport. The sorrounding area is near the foothills of the mountains which lie near the borders of Myanmar and Laos in an area where many tribal groups are located. Since the months of October and November fall during the end of the rainy season in Thailand, while at times it may be a little wet, the temperature will also be cooler. We have chosen this location as the place to host the LDC because of the setting and atmosphere which it is set in.
