STEP leadership training


STEP is our first level leadership development course. Over 6 months, a rhythm of discipleship groups and training sessions will help you step into the call of God to lead as a Christian at work, in the community, at college, or in the church.

The course include understanding the call to godly leadership, learning to lead ourselves, getting passionate about Jesus, learning to read the Bible well, missional living, discipleship, and leading with vision - and lots more!

STEP has 6 sessions in total - 3 Saturday mornings and 3 Sunday evenings from autumn to spring each year. For 2021-22 it will run from January to April 2022 (dates here). Between each session there will be short reading, study or other activities to do in your own time.

STEP is for

  • anyone in OCC who is willing to grow in leadership and
  • willing to be personally mentored (if you don't already have a mentor we will help you find one) and
  • part of a church Community (small group)

If you've not yet completed our church membership course (a simple journey to help you understand our 'church DNA' / vision and values) we like you to do this before or soon after starting STEP and can help you arrange this.

If you're a very new Christian, it's probably more appropriate to complete another one of our courses first - do ask us.
