Kingdomcity Leadership Academy has begun for 2017!
Everything we do as a church is designed to connect you, equip you and empower you to bring the reality of God to your world. Kingdomcity Leadership Academy (KLA) is an intensive 9-month acceleration of spiritual development that will change your life.
Whatever your dream is and whatever your future holds in terms of call, career, family and community, it will be more effective in every area as a “disciple of Christ” rather than just a “casual Christian”.
The making of a disciple is multi-dimensional – it involves learning, relating, training, encountering and experiencing. KLA is intentionally designed as a 9-month program with all these components in mind, so that whatever relationship, role and responsibility you carry in life, you will engage it as a “better” person because of this life changing investment.
If: you are part of Kingdomcity; you are willing to invest 3 days a week (including Sunday) for 9 months (Feb – Oct 2017) to be holistically discipled; and you are hungry to grow, teachable in heart and willing to experience something new
We invite you to apply to join us on this exciting journey of leadership and discipleship.
Mark & Jemima Varughese
Senior Leaders, Kingdomcity
Our existing equipping courses and specifically designed KLA discipleship material will be instrumental in deepening your understanding of God’s word and how it applies to every part of your life. The values of the King and His Kingdom are transferable to all parts of life and this will be a time of depth and application that will strengthen your relationship with God.
Loving God and people is demonstrated through service with love and excellence. We grow by serving, we love by serving and we learn by serving. This is a huge part of biblical discipleship. As a participant, you will be a part of the Kingdomcity team and be involved in the outworking of our weekly services, programmes and our larger events as a volunteer. This includes one day during the week and a Sunday serving role. Everyone who has done great things for God in life has been discipled through the joy of serving to bless others.
A vital part of discipleship is not just learning the theory of God but experiencing His reality and encountering Him. Encounters with God change you and there will be time set apart for receiving ministry, seeking God through worship and prayer and the encounters with God. Knowing about God is important, but knowing God is the real goal. The spiritual disciplines of prayer, fasting and bible reading will be intentionally integrated as a key part of KLA.
Mission trips always leave a mark on your life. We have determined that the discipleship process is not complete unless each person experiences a life-altering mission trip, so we have made it a part of the KLA experience. In 2017, your fee will include the entire Gathering & Convergence experience in KL and Cambodia, including all costs (and airfares from Perth for Perth participants)! You will return absolutely impacted and eternally ‘marked’ by your time away.
All Kingdomcity events throughout the year that you are required to be at.
Full Gathering & Convergence Experience Package 9 days, 8 nights in KL and Cambodia, including all flights to and from KL (for Perth participants) and to and from Cambodia (for all KL & Perth participants). Check out the website below!
