Overview and Description of LeadBeyond
LeadBeyond is the name of the EFCC’s leadership development initiative brought forward by Dan Nicholson and his team. Its stated goal is to Honour the Past, Build the Future, thereby creating a culture which identifies and affirms leaders in their roles.
Here is a cover letter from Dan, providing a thumbnail sketch of what LeadBeyond is, and how it relates to our 30 for 30 fundraising campaign:

A fairly extensive overview of LeadBeyond is contained in the Development Plan booklet:

Development Plan (print version — 12MB, 8.5×14, double-sided)
This is a good starting place to discover what LeadBeyond is intended to accomplish for our movement.
Surveying EFCC leadership was the first thing LeadBeyond did. We’ve compiled a report from those survey results, which you may be interested in. These results have informed several of the ongoing decisions that LeadBeyond is making to address felt needs, to provide better resources and to ensure that our leaders feel supported in their roles:

Our initial launch is concentrating on the pastoral role within churches. We are working to identify new Apprentices who we can match with established Mentor-Coaches. But this is only the beginning! Our LeadBeyond team has a passion to assist churches to develop healthy church leadership at all levels. Through effective leadership, our congregations can meet their own needs, and serve their external communities better as well!
