LeadingLDS is a (pending nonprofit) organization with a mission to enhance leadership ability and capacity of lay religious leaders in order to accelerate the mission of the The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
Here are 4 ways LeadingLDS accomplishes the above mission statement:
- Stimulate the sharing of leadership ideas related to the day-to-day and week-to-week responsibilities of LDS leaders.
- Make available research and training that could enhance leadership ability related to human motivation, teaching, public speaking, communication, and personal development.
- Negotiate relationships with businesses and organizations that can increase the confidence of leaders and decrease the stress associated with demanding callings in the LDS Church.
- Celebrate the importance of governing priesthood keys, spiritual inspiration, and living prophets that are sacred sources of divine leadership.
LeadingLDS is not owned or sponsored by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and we seek to have a positive relationship with the Church.
