My whole reason for helping found MOVEMENT.ORG was about the ‘leadership’ component, bringing world-class leadership skill training to pastors and not-for-profit directors in the greater NYC metro area. The Advance Leadership Intensive does this effectively through its nine-month program.

As a speaker I love when the leadership of an organization – the entire staff involved in making an event a success, and even the targeted audience – are all aligned on what they’re striving to accomplish. This is the case regarding MOVEMENT.ORG. They definitely walk the talk.

I have learned two principles about God’s way of Kingdom leadership. Firstly, His leaders need first to be followers. Secondly, learning to lead is a process and best learned in community. The Advance Leadership Intensive embodies these principles to a greater degree than any leadership program I am aware of.
