This program is a process of journeying with those ministering in areas that are socio-economically deprived. Thrive Ireland has adapted a unique Leadership development programme successfully developed by Tearfund called Inspired Individuals.
We spent some time researching the needs of such leaders. They suffer isolation, stress and burnout and lack the personal skills and resilience required to thrive in such a demanding ministry environment. Across the denominations, our Transformation Leadership Programme brings leaders into groups or cohorts of others in similar ministry, for mutual support and learning.
Each leader begins with a specially developed self-assessment of their own development needs, and specific training is offered in Leadership, Organisational & Strategic development, Self-care, and Resilience. One on one coaching, mentoring and pastoral care is an integral part of the process.
