Leaders are encouraged to be prepared and formed for leadership in Communities and beyond; People in Ministry and other leaders, paid and voluntary, in churches, agencies, communities and workplaces.
Leadership formation and development occurs through participation in relevant, engaging and equipping professional development processes which includes Lifelong learning, Supervision, regular Review feedback, and Wellbeing and support practices.
Elders provide leadership through valuable support to the community’s Minister/s and through partnership with the Minister/s in all that God is calling the community to be and do, including equipping people for mission and ministry, prayer and discernment, spiritual leadership, vision setting, governance, financial accountability and compliance.
Church and agency administrators provide practical support and guidance in partnership with Ministers and other leaders in their organisations. This includes the day-to-day practicalities of a secretary, and the governance and resourcing support of a treasurer, and many others.
The Leadership Team is here to assist all leaders of Communities of Hope and Compassion with support, advice, and training.
Looking for ongoing support in the journey of ministry? CCVT believes that supervision is vital for all people in ministry, and we want to connect you with a local supervisor.
CCVT is committed to our churches and agencies being safe places for everyone. New and updated policies and resources are being made available.
A rich part of the deeper story of Churches of Christ is ‘mutual ministry’ or ‘the priesthood of all believers’. This means that everybody is gifted and important, including those with the gift of leadership who are called to “equip believers, releasing them to participate in ministry and mission on the basis of their giftedness and capacity.”
CCVT greatly values all people who provide leadership as volunteers, faithfully contributing to the mission and ministries of their community over and above the ministry and mission performed in their workplace.
All People in Ministry are encouraged to be Lifelong Learners, participating in relevant professional development processes and formation for ministry.
All leaders (People in Ministry, paid and voluntary) are encouraged to be prepared and formed for leadership in Communities and beyond.
Elders, Board Members, or Council Members all perform a vital function in the lives of Communities of Hope and Compassion, equipping, releasing, and making decisions.
Youth Vision is the generational ministry arm of CCVT, engaged with equipping and encouraging leaders of young people and families.
