1. WHAT IS THE GOAL OF T2?

Leading Together, Transformation Generations (T2) is a TRAC Christian Leadership Series, aimed primarily to nurture a community of new, young and emerging leaders to lead the church together into God’s agenda in this generation and the generations to come. T2 is inspired by and grounded in the spirit of the Methodist movement, borne out of the Holy Spirit’s transforming work of renewal and revival. Guided by this rich heritage, TRAC’s mission is to raise leaders as agents of God’s renewal movement. Hence, her task is to equip leaders to discern the movement of the Spirit of God for their generation and to recognize the signs of the times in order to respond to His transforming agenda for their personal, communal and missional life.

 

2. WHAT ARE THE TWIN DESIRED OUTCOMES OF T2?

Every team member will come away having learnt:
Desired Outcome 1: Leading for Transformation - To inspire leaders to attend to their inner life and discern the Spirit’s movements through engaging in a life-giving rhythm, guided by a personal rule of life, in order to be a discerning leader who leads from a life that is deeply connected with God, self and others.
Desired Outcome 2: Leading Together - To cultivate a Spirit-led community life that fosters a healthy, collaborative and discerning leadership community and inspires a way of leading together towards a collective missional cause, with a Kingdom mindset.

 

 

3. WHAT ARE THE THREE TOUCHPOINTS OF T2?

Touchpoint #1: The Person of the Leader
Discover the core of spiritual leadership by delving into the depths of your inner life. This interactive session integrates leadership roles and lifelong discipleship as followers of Jesus. Dive deep into theological reflection of your personal journey, exploring its stages, unique contributions, and roots within the Wesleyan tradition. Learn how to prioritise pastoral care, and spiritual formation to prevent burnout, address perfectionism, and embrace human flourishing as imago Dei. Recognise the vital role of physical health in spiritual growth.

Touchpoint #2: Cultivating a Leadership Community
Leaders not only lead in community. They also actively participate in and are a part of communities. This Touchpoint focuses on the essential task of cultivating vibrant and supportive communities within Christian contexts. Explore the relational dimension of leadership across successive sessions, aiming to deepen your leadership community experience and vision for nurturing thriving, authentic and discerning communities.

Touchpoint #3: Leading with a Kingdom Mindset
Embark on a transformative journey to equip your church with the vision and tools needed to reach the unreached  and unchurched in today’s post-pandemic, VUCA (volatile, uncertain, complex, ambiguous) society. Explore strategies to overcome silo thinking, effectively engage younger audiences, maintain relational leadership approaches, and navigate change with a Kingdom mindset.

5. WHO WILL BENEFIT FROM T2?

T2 participation involves a discernment process through intentional conversation and prayer. We would like to invite you to begin a co-discernment process with your pastor if you fulfill the following criteria of inner posture, leadership experience and commitment capacity:

  • Inner Posture: 
    • Desiring to Grow: You desire to grow in  your life with God and in your leadership capacity
    • Willing to Share Life: You are willing to share your life and subject yourself to team accountability 
    • Open to Learn: You are open to learn, to contribute and to receive from one another 
    • Motivated : You are both self-motivated and interested to rally others for a common cause
  • Leadership Experience: 
    You belong to one of these categories of leaders in your local church:
    • New Leaders: You are new to the leadership (at least 2 years of experience & regardless of age group) OR
    • Young Leaders: You are an existing young leader (49 years old and below) OR
    • Emerging Leaders: You desire to intentionally learn and be mentored for future leadership (40 years old and below)
  • Commitment & Engagement Capacity: 
    • Stamina: You have the ability and stamina to commit to the duration of the program of 15 months – barring unforeseen life circumstances.
    • Space: You are able to carve out intentional space in your schedule for personal growth (reading, journaling, prayer, reflection) and be part of an on-going learning community (Touchpoints, group conversations, online sessions).
    • Readiness: You sense that you are in a season of readiness to engage and participate more intentionally with God, self and others for personal & communal growth.

 

 

6. HOW DO YOU SIGN UP FOR T2?

T2 is a cohort-team-based participation. It involves a discernment process through intentional conversation and prayer. We would like to invite you to begin a co-discernment process with your pastor and then sign up as a TEAM of 4-5 leaders together with your pastor.  We believe that coming as a team helps build a community of learners who can journey with one another and provide some continuity for practice and application in your respective local context. Limited places are available for this pilot cohort.

If you are a pastor and feel drawn to this, identify and invite potential participants who fulfill the T2 criteria to enter into a co-discernment process with you and discern together through conversations and prayer. (If you are a New, Young or Emerging Leader and you resonate with the T2 vision, mission and task, begin with prayer, followed by a conversation with your pastor in order to explore and discern together.)

Deadline for T2 Team Registration: Oct 30, 2024
