JOURNEY towards
TRANSFORMATION.
Three Observations:

MISSION

TRANSFORMATION
CHRISTIAN LEADERSHIP
as a FAITH-JOURNEY
Let us reflect.
• As a Christian Leader for 5, 10, 15 years
or more, how do I see myself?
• Am I growing integrally in my Christian
Faith?
• Where am I in my journey?
• Do I lead them to Christ and to His vision
or do I lead them to myself and to my own
vision?
No matter how long we
have been in our service
as Christian Leaders, we
still are not exempted to
receive PROPER
CHRISTIAN
FORMATION through
CATECHESIS!
Catechesis is…………………

• Formation in the
FAITH in order to
make it alive,
conscious, active
and fruitful.
Catechesis is ……………….

• A nourishment that
sustains our
Christian Faith and
Life in season and
in out of season.
(cf. The Parable of
the Sower)
CHRISTIAN FAITH
makes our type of
leadership unique from
other types of
leadership.
The Aim of Catechesis
vis-a-vis CHRISTIAN
LEADERSHIP
That as Christian
Leaders we think, we
love and we act in all
things like Jesus!
