GCL Book

Growing Church Leaders (front cover)Growing Church Leaders is a transformational small group bible study released in November 2010 by Westbow Press. It was developed at Kingsway Community Church in San Jose, California as a tool to help those who are mature train up the next generation of leaders in their churches to think biblically, live wisely, and serve faithfully.

Consisting of three 12-week modules, this course helps senior leaders nurture practical holiness in a small group of faithful men and women as they commit to:

  • Memorize Bible verses
  • Read classic Christian books
  • Lead devotions, typically from Psalms or Proverbs
  • Study entire chapters of the Bible, verse by verse
  • Explore how Scripture applies to their lives
  • Respond with repentance, action, and worship

The goal of all this is to teach theology, character formation, and christian disciplines in  the context of:

  • the whole counsel of Scripture
  • existing pastoral relationships
  • the local church
  • loving God with all our heart, soul, mind and strength
