The L3 Leadership Incubator system, key to the Kansas Area's plan to strengthen existing congregations, is a sustainable, peer-group-based, mission-driven, leadership development programs that will include 212 congregations across the state over the next three years.
L3 Leadership Incubator creates an environment where spiritual leaders and ideas are born, nurtured, and developed by using cutting-edge technology and prayerful dialogue. L3 stands for three levels of development: love, learn and lead. L1, loving God and neighbor; L2, learning personal gifts and abilities for the future through investigation of current context and congregation; and L3, implementing an Incubator Ministry Action Plan with others in the church setting.
Participants in the Incubator make a commitment to meet once a month for 12 months for peer-to-peer learning and support. Participating pastors will facilitate an incubator group for laity in their congregation. The goal is to implement a ministry action plan that develops disciple-making ministries in their specific congregations. These groups also will participate in four continuing-education seminars following the year-long Incubator.
