Increased Opportunities for Leadership Training in Southeast Asia

Increased Opportunities for Leadership Training in Southeast Asia

Jakarta Indonesia

In support of the growing opportunities for leadership training and development throughout Southeast Asia, Chief International Officer Jim Montgomery will travel to Indonesia and the Philippines during the month of May.

Jim will be traveling to Jakarta, Indonesia, May 4-11 to help develop a strategy for national expansion and to train facilitators. There will also be two Encounters held during his time there — one for ministry and church leaders, and one for 50 business leaders in Jakarta.

“This will be a wonderful opportunity,” Jim says. “Engaging business leaders to lead like Jesus will help provide awareness and cultural change.”

“In a country with approximately 18,000 islands and over 180 million Muslims – one of the largest Muslim populations in the world – Indonesia stands as a tremendous opportunity for Lead Like Jesus to help revive the Church, Christian business leaders, and institutions,” says Jim.

Once the new Global Encounter is translated into their own language -- Bahasa Indonesia -- Encounters and Ignite conferences will influence Indonesians of all ages. The hope is to translate Lead Like Jesus materials into this language within this coming year.

Jim will also be travelling to the Philippines from May 14-29. His time there will consist of meeting with LLJ national representatives and training the core leadership team on the new Encounter geared for a global audience. This trip will also include the annual CEO Encounter in Manila  where he will be co-facilitating with Master Trainers from Breakthrough Leadership Management Consultancy.

“The Philippines is one of Lead Like Jesus’ flagship ministries,” says Jim. “They have been successful at integrating Lead Like Jesus in the marketplace, the Philippines Armed Forces, the Police Academy, and universities.”

The LLJ team in the Philippines will also strategize on how to increase the influence among churches and church planters at the grassroots level.
