Germinate Leadership is for lay and ordained leaders in rural churches who have already displayed some creative and entrepreneurial flair in ministry and are keen to develop themselves and their skills. Every part of the Germinate Leadership programme is rooted in the opportunities and challenges of ministry in rural contexts and fosters a collaborative, ecumenical approach and a culture of continuing personal and professional development. It is expected that all participants, both lay and ordained, will leave as creative, entrepreneurial and strategic leaders, better equipped to engage effectively with local communities and encourage churches to be an effective Christian presence.
