Leadership Development                                       

North River acknowledges the importance of developing future leaders to carry out God’s mission.  To that end, Leadership Development is a major strategic imperative.  This focus gave birth to The Leadership Formation Adventure (TLFA) comprised of North River delivered leadership training to both present a future leaders at North River.


To invest TODAY in the leaders that we will need TOMORROW … to accomplish our mission daily … to do God’s work better together … to  accelerate the implementation of the North River Vision – ”People being forever changed by God’s love, and daily changing the South Shore and beyond for Jesus”

What’s our Leadership Development plan?

The Leadership Development Plan for 2021-2022 provides for three Complementary and Aligned Leadership Development Streams:

  1. The Leadership Formation Adventure (TLFA): see below
  2. Ministry Specific Leadership Development and Coaching:  Intentional and structured coaching and mentoring of staff and ministry leaders to develop, strengthen and grow the leadership capability throughout the church.
  3. The Global Leadership Summit is an impactful “Summer Leadership Camp” (online or physical depending on pandemics) with online followup materials for NR and South Shore people to increase their ability to influence others and to be better leaders.


The Leadership Formation Adventure

Leadership Development is a lifelong calling for each and every one of us, for both our own development and the influencing of other individuals.

Why TLFA?   It provides a biblical Leadership Development foundation for leaders and future leader.

What/How?   It’s an adventure as it blends (1) reading, (2) lecture with Q&A, (3) small group discussion, and (4) real life & ministry application through role play of key learning.  In the “post-COVID19” environment the leaders of TLFA have decided to conduct the program in person but will have a virtual hybrid option for anyone that desires that platform.

 Who should participate?  Current and future leaders with a wide range of personality style, age and leadership experience.
