Are you ready to grow?

We are looking for young people (Year 13-14 or equivalent) who are keen to explore and experience servant leadership whilst investing in their own spiritual growth, their character development and the practical skills that will help them to reach and disciple others both now and in the future.

You don’t need to be perfect, you don’t need to have all the answers, and you don’t need to be super-confident or super-human to take part in the Encounter Leadership Development Programme. However, you do need to be prepared to grow!

Over the next year you will need to engage your mind to learn, read, listen and think deeply. You will need to be prepared to reshape some of your time and priorities to intentionally develop spiritual habits that will feed your soul, challenge your character and mould your heart. And you will have to commit to community (Encounter and a church family) to put into practice the practical skills you’ll learn as you both serve others and serve alongside others from a range of backgrounds.
