Pastor as Public Leader

Taking responsibility for your towns and cities beyond the boundaries of your church buildings

Imagine how you could impact your community when you increase your influence outside of the church building

Recent research from the Barna Group suggests that 1 in 5 people don’t see pastors influencing society beyond their own congregation. Dave Landrum is Director of Advocacy at the Evangelical Alliance and is committed to seeing Christianity make an impact on society by placing itself front and centre of political, cultural and economic life.

Public leadership is about taking responsibility, it is about knowing we speak and act under the authority of God, it is about caring for the place God has put us in and stepping up, speaking out and engaging in public life. It means taking our place as leaders in politics, the media and all parts of society.

The challenge to increase influence outside the walls of the church

How can you as a pastor support, encourage and affirm those in your church who are shaping and influencing public life on a daily basis. What role can you take as a public leader in your sphere of influence?

This special training event seeks to address these questions with the following four sessions:

  1. What kind of society – what would you like to see in your town/city/village, vision etc.

  2. The role of the pastor in the community (engaging with local politics & media, etc.)

  3. Equipping the congregation - Public Leadership

  4. Equipping the congregation - Speak Up
