What is Kingdom Life Leadership Academy?
Kingdom Life is a place for raising up and equipping followers of Jesus to bring Kingdom impact into their sphere of influence. This moves the advancement of God’s Kingdom outside the walls of the church into every area of society; making our city, our workplaces and our families look more like Heaven and our personal lives look more like Jesus.
Kingdom Life will be split into two streams, one is the Leadership Stream, the other is the Discipleship Stream. As a guest you can pick and choose over the year which modules you want to attend based on what interests you, or where you would like to grow. General sessions run from 7pm – 8:15pm (internships run until 9pm). As a guest there is no commitment to be a part of every module. Each module goes over three weeks with the fourth week being a break for our Paradox Family Dinners. Over the course of the year we will cover ten modules in each stream. The cost to come to the modules is free with a donation bucket provided if you want to support the program.
The Leadership Stream is about moving beyond just being a disciple of Jesus to being a disciple maker and City changer for Jesus. If you feel created for a greater purpose than you are currently living and you want help to realise your potential in Christ, learn the skills to lead people and change the city for God’s glory, then this is the stream for you.
The Discipleship Stream is about raising disciples who know who they are in Christ and what God has created them for. If you want to grow as a follower of Jesus – learning the foundations of your faith, developing your intimacy with God and being equipped to do life with Holy Spirit to impact the world around you, then the modules in this stream are for you.
Both of these streams run on the same night at the same time in different rooms at Paradox Church.
The GreenHouse Internship program takes what you learn from the Leadership Stream of Kingdom Life and places it in the context of application, group work, discussion and mentorship. We will have Marketplace Mentorships (mentored in the context of your existing workplace or sphere of influence) and Ministry Internships (mentored in a church ministry context or in one of our community ministries like The CREW or Liliah Haven).
The internship commitment is centred around Wednesday nights from 7-9pm and then serving in some context during the week or weekend, or spending focused time in your own marketplace context. We will give more details regarding GreenHouse during the first three Wednesday nights at Kingdom Life. You will need to apply by the end of the third week to be considered for the 2023 GreenHouse Internship program.
The internship will cost $200 per semester and payment plans are available, but don’t let finances stop you from being involved as we can work with you to ensure you can be part of the internship program. The main information in regards to internships will be provided at Kingdom Life during the first three weeks so come along and check it out!
