Since 1972 Germinate: The Arthur Rank Centre, an ecumenical Christian charity, has served both the spiritual and practical needs of the rural community through a programme of community and social projects, resourcing and training.
APPLICATIONS ARE NOW OPEN FOR THE 2020 GERMINATE LEADERSHIP PROGRAMME
We've already started to receive applications for this programme so we would encourage you to apply - or at least register your interest - at the earliest opportunity!
Every part of the Germinate Leadership programme is rooted in the opportunities and challenges of ministry in rural contexts and fosters a collaborative, ecumenical approach and a culture of continuing personal and professional development. It is expected that all participants, both lay and ordained, will end the programme as creative, entrepreneurial, collaborative and strategic leaders, better equipped to engage effectively with local communities and encourage churches to be an effective Christian presence.
The 18-month programme includes four residentials, a 360° leadership appraisal, mentoring and work-shadowing. A variety of learning styles are used and teaching incorporates wisdom and experience drawn from secular and church leadership spheres. The programme draws on lay and ordained ministry experience from across the denominations.
