Thirty days from now, Luke Kuepfer and I will be departing for Uganda and Ghana to train leaders to Lead Like Jesus and we need your help. From June 13th-July 6th, we will be starting the second year of a four-year process to develop and equip leaders who in turn will develop other leaders – just like Jesus did!
This process is designed to help pastors and other Christian leaders take new (novice) leaders and through yearly training sessions, quarterly coaching and mentoring, and practical application, equip them to become fully developed Master/Teacher leaders who will then be able to train and develop others.
In 2013, Luke and I had the privilege of training 35 leaders from these two countries in the first phase (year) of our process. This year, we will return to train them in the second phase on deeper leadership subjects and to coach them as they begin to train others – approximately 100 new leaders – in the first phase/year. By having each new leader commit to training and developing three (3) new leaders, over a four year period we will train over 900 leaders who understand what it means to Lead Like Jesus. In following this process, the potential exists for an exponential growth in the number of leaders that can be used to reach many, many more people for Christ. We believe that we are launching a movement that has the potential to raise up servant leaders all across the continent of Africa.
For us to accomplish what God has laid before us, we need your help. First, we need your prayers. Not just for Luke and I, but also for the men and women who will be attending the training; many of whom must travel great distances and at their own expense. We are also in need of your financial support to help us cover our expenses for travel, lodging, and the cost of the materials that we will be providing to help these leaders learn and to teach others.
Any amount that you chose to give, whether it is $5, $10, $25, $100 or more, will be greatly appreciated. We have arranged with Lead Like Jesus, a 501(c)3 non-profit ministry, a very convenient and tax-deductable way for you to donate. You can go to www.leadlikejesus.com/donate/donate, enter the amount you wish to give, click on the “Uganda 2014 Donation” button, hit the “submit” button, then enter “Luke and Fred” in the Sponsored Attendee space, fill in your billing/payment information, and finally click on the “Place Order” button. You will immediately receive a receipt for your donation.
Thank you in advance for your prayers and financial support. God is using Lead Like Jesus to make a Kingdom difference in Uganda, Ghana, and over 40 countries around the world and we are grateful for the opportunity to be part of this great ministry.
