Leadership is a key factor in developing and maintaining healthy churches. California Southern Baptist Convention is committed to helping churches discover, develop and deploy leaders.

George Barna, a leading church growth expert, has said the need to develop leaders is an ongoing challenge for churches. Effective leaders have three things in common: a sense of call from God for their task, an exhibition of Christian character in their lifestyle and a demonstration of competence in their ability to lead and do their ministry. Henry Blackaby says, “Spiritual leadership is moving people onto God’s agenda.”
