Our annual Leaders Day this November is going to be focusing on the theme of ‘Discipling the Generations’.
Monday 12th November, 9.30am-4pm at St Thomas’ Church Philadelphia, part of Network Church Sheffield
We are excited that we have Matt Summerfield (Urban Saints), John and Joanne O’Connor, (Junction 42), Rich Atkinson (Rebuild) and Lynn Alexander (Children Families and God) joining us to help us think through how we both disciple different generations of people, as well as how we disciple all-generations of people together as one church.
This event is open to anyone and we have space for plenty of people so come along with your colleagues, teams and friends! Tickets are now available at www.buytickets.at/kx and we hope to see you there.
In partnership with Elim training we are pleased to announce the launch of a series of three training webinars across 2018 for church leaders wanting to develop missional discipleship in their church.
These webinars have been designed to help church leaders to train their key leaders and teams in developing the missional, discipleship and leadership culture in their churches. Participants are invited to gather a team in their local setting on these 3 Saturday mornings in 2018 to watch and participate in the webinar. Included in the cost is a place for the Senior Leader in an 8 session online Coaching Huddle with an experienced Kx practitioner, which will help you to embed the principles you learn into your local setting.
Church leaders are encouraged to then work out how to to apply and process the training content in a way that makes best sense for your local context.
Places are limited and are at a cost of £310* per church for the full 12 months. If you would like to find out more email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Webinars will take place over Zoom (free to download and use) and will run from 9:30am – 12:30pm on Saturdays 20th January, 19th May and 29th September on the following 3 themes.
1 ‘Missional culture’ 20th January
Learn how to use the disciple-makers journey tool to help your members identify people of peace and invite them on a journey of discipleship. Gain understanding of how to help your small groups identity their missional focus and vision and find tools to sharpen your own practice as a missionary.
2 ‘Discipleship culture’ 19th May
You will learn how to help all your members become learners, disciples. You will discover the four discipleship spaces and how to apply them to your small groups.
3 ‘Leadership culture’ 29th September
You will grow in experience of the most effective leadership disciple making tools. You will begin to grow your leadership pipeline.
We highly recommend the training takes place in a location which has a reliable internet connection, and where participants can comfortably see the screen.

One of the training options that we offer to churches is our Learning Communities
. These are generally 4 immersions spaced out over 2 years and are an intensive way of getting teaching, process time and strategic planning for church leaders and their teams. The Tunbridge Wells Learning Community have just finished their 3rd immersion and Sean Dooley sent us this story about how they’ve been raising other leaders up to run LCs themselves.
“One of the great things about the Tunbridge Wells LC is that it has been the vehicle for Frontier Leader Training. We are clearly modelling to all the participants on the LC the taking of LC leaders around the discipleship square (see diagram). We deliberately point out to the participants on the LC that, for example, ‘Andy Strajnic is now doing L3 as a LC leader on this third immersion. Please encourage and support him.’
We call it Frontier Leader Training because we are taking a select group of people who have not only internalised missional discipleship, but are living it and have the anointing to coach others in it. Our hope is that they will be the guys that will develop missional discipleship training for other church leaders in their relational networks, using the 3DM material. In other words, that they would be leaders on the frontier of training church leaders in mission and discipleship. In turn doing what I have done with them – training other Frontier Leaders. In fact, Phil Stokes is doing that as I write!
spoke to Paul Maconochie (Director of 3DM USA) recently and he reminded me that getting a movement going requires doing the same things, in the same way, over and over, until people ‘get it’ and begin to run with it themselves. The guys we are training are leaders on the frontier of making that happen in our nation and that is no overstatement. There are still thousands of churches in our nation that have not even begun to ask the right questions about what is wrong with the church, let alone begun to search for the answers. There is still massive scope for Learning Communities.
Those currently on Frontier Leaders Training are Andy Strajnic, Phil Stokes, Nic Bradshaw and Richard Glazier.”
