Foundations
for Leadership

Before You Apply...
The right kind of applicant
The Foundations for Leadership course has been designed to develop strong Christian leaders. Applicants should
therefore be seriously committed Christians who are already ministering/helping in their local churches in some way and
wish to receive training to live and serve more effectively in the kingdom of God. People should only apply if they by their
own free will wish to participate and are willing to follow the instructions given and make the effort required to meet the
spiritual, academic, and social requirements of the course.
Change
During Foundations you will be challenged and many things will surface in your life. Your willingness to change and let
go of everything that is not in accordance with the nature of God in you is essential.
Discipleship
The leadership will guide you to new experiences in Christ. This will be done by different examples and models of
prayer, worship, ministering etc. that you are expected to follow during the course.

Housing
During the course you will have to live in a house and with the people assigned to you by Foundations. You will have to
share a room with at least one person and help with the daily household chores.
Trip
Foundations will culminate in a 10 day mission trip where we minister to different churches and mission. The eating and
sleeping conditions on this trip might not always be comfortable.
Relationships
FOUNDATION is a time to set yourself apart for God and let Him work in your life. It is therefore not allowed to establish
a romantic relationship or display any kind of romantic behaviour (except married couples) while you are in the course.
If you have any questions please write to foundations@cci.org.mx and only apply for the course if you have no
problems with any of the above.

Values and Regulations
The Values of Christian Community International
1. Love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind. (Matthew 22:37)
A. - Devotional Life
Now this is the eternal life: That they may know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent
(John 17:3).
This is what the Lord says: ”Let not the wise man boast of his wisdom or the strong man boast of his strength
or the rich man boast of his riches, but let him who boasts, boast about this: that he understands and knows
me, that I am the Lord, who exercises kindness, justice and righteousness on earth, for in these things I
delight” (Jeremiah 9:23-24).
B.- To Minister to the Lord
Be an example participating in worship and praise in the meetings.
In the church at Antioch there were prophets and teachers...while they were worshiping the Lord and fasting
(Acts 13:1-2).
”Yet a time is coming and has now come when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth,
for they are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks.” (John 4:23).
C.- Aggressive Faith
From the days of John the Baptist until now, the kingdom of heaven has been forcefully advancing, and
forceful men lay hold of it (Matthew 11:12).
”If you can?” Jesus said. ”Everything is possible for him who believes” (Mark 9:23).
Then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God. (Romans 10:17).
D.- Identity
...to be made new in the attitude of your minds; and to put on the new self, created to be like God in true
righteousness and holiness (Ephesians 4:23-24).
...and have put on the new self, which is being renewed in knowledge in the image of its Creator
(Colossians 3:10).
For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he...(Proverbs 23:7).
In our new identity we now have:
-Total forgiveness
-The Nature of the father
-The Righteousness of Christ
-Authority
-Power
E.- Complete Integrity
Lord, who may dwell in your sanctuary? Who may live on your holy hill? He whose walk is blameless and who
does what is righteous, who speaks the truth from his heart and has no slander on his tongue, who does his
neighbour no wrong and casts no slur on his fellow man (Psalm 15:1-3).
F.- Stewardship
”...Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. Test me in this” says the
Lord Almighty “and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that
you will not have room enough for it” (Malachi 3:10).
G.- Fear of the Lord
The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge (Proverbs 1:7).
whatever a man sows, that he also will reap. (Gal 6:7)
Life is built on the principle of cause and effect.

Rules and Regulations

Foundations
for Leadership

2. Love your neighbour as yourself. (Matthew 22:37)
A.- Be Identified with the Body
From him the whole body, joined and held together by every supporting ligament, grows and builds itself up in
love, as each part does its work (Ephesians 4:16)
For her stones are dear to your servants (Psalm 102: 14).
B.- Servant’s Heart
But if your servant says to you, I do not want to leave you, because he loves you and your family and is well
off with you (Deuteronomy 15:16).
Your attitude should be the same as that of Christ Jesus: Who, being in very nature God, did not consider
equality with God something to be grasped, but made himself nothing, taking the very nature of a servant,
being made in human likeness. And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself and became
obedient to death - even death on a cross! (Philippians 2:5-8).
C.- Mercy
"He does not treat us as our sins deserve or repay us according to our iniquities. For as high as the heavens
are above the earth, so great is his love for those who fear him" (Psalm 103:10-11).
Because judgement without mercy will be shown to everyone who has not been merciful. Mercy triumphs over
judgement! (James 2:13).
D.- Resolving Conflicts
If your brother sins against you, go and show him his fault, just between the two of you. If he listens to you,
you have won your brother over (Matthew 18:15).
If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone (Romans 12:18).
Make a word pact that you will give a good report of your brother and be submissive to Matthew 18 in conflict
situations.
E.- Do Not Judge
Do not judge, or you too will be judged. For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with the
measure you use, it will be measured to you (Matthew 7:1-2).
Cain’s Path – (Genesis 4)
F.- Restoration
Brothers, if someone is caught in a sin, you who are spiritual should restore him gently. But watch yourself, or
you also may be tempted. Carry each other’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfil the law of Christ
(Galatians 6:1-2).
G.- Faithfulness
My eyes will be on the faithful in the land (Psalm 101:6).
Who then is the faithful and the wise servant, whom the master has put in charge of the servants in his
household to give them their food at the proper time? (Matthew 24:45).
Whoever can be trusted with very little… (Luke 16:10).
...but to show that they can be fully trusted… (Titus 2:10).
H.- Loyalty
...And not to steal from them, but to show that they can be fully trusted, so that in every way they will make the
teaching about God our Savoir attractive (Titus 2:10).
Loyalty must be shown towards God, delegated leadership and authorities.
