Leadership DevelopmentInstability is an ongoing issue in Haiti. A lack of strong leadership has continued to divide the country locally and nationally. Since the assassination of President Jovenel Moïse, the nation has been plunged further into a state of crisis. With a history of perpetual foreign intervention and political instability and a lack of clear leadership, it has become hard for Haitians to find hope.

Haiti is the first independent black republic in the world, gaining freedom from France in 1804
WHAT WE DO
Through Leadership Development, we want to equip and strengthen leaders who can transform their communities and bring hope. Our programs encourage and challenge individuals to be servant-hearted, focusing on the needs of their community. We aim to create a solid foundation for change by investing in local women and men who lead in love.
Leads Like Jesus Training
Loving those you influence so much that you help them move from where they are to where God wants them to be.
Working in partnership with the international organization Lead Like Jesus, we have created a leadership curriculum that has been adapted, contextualized, and translated into Haitian Creole from the study guide Lead Like Jesus Revisited. The training focuses on a beautiful definition of leadership as influence: loving those you influence so much that you help them move from where they are to where God wants them to be.This is being used as the foundational discipleship material, focusing on the Heart, Head, Hands, and Habits of a leader. Small classes of about 15 students allow for a personal discipleship model.
There are 2 levels of training, each running over 5 months.
Level 1 focuses on the transformation of the Heart of a leader. The course concludes with the students creating action plans that are focused on a problem, challenge, or need in their area of influence.
Level 2 focuses on the Hands of the leader in leading people, applied in Haitian culture. The opposite problems of pride and fear are addressed. It concludes with a focus on the Doing Habits of extending grace, offering encouragement and building community.
