EFC-MAYM Church Leadership Institute for Ministry

Leadership Institute Brochure

Foundational Principles

Leadership Development

  • Pastors and church leaders will be better prepared  for effective leadership, to discern giftedness in the church, and to provide training  for greater responsibility in ministry.
  • Many of the pastors in this program will begin as bi-vocational ministers.


  • The key to this system is matching a “Timothy” with a “Paul”, who will give assistance in gaining practical skills.

Team Building

  • Pastors, youth pastors and church leaders often feel all alone and have few mechanisms for sharing, planning and dreaming.
  • Our goal is to build fellowship and support groups for those who will be involved in church leadership.
