You want to be energized and equipped for ministry.
We all know ministry leaders who seem to have their act together – on fire for ministry, filled with enthusiasm, and equipping teams of people around them. What’s their secret? How do they pull it off?
At KINDLE, we know that you want to be energized and equipped for ministry as a 2nd chair leader. Deep down, you want to be a trusted voice and cultivate leaders around you. To do that, you need confidence in the direction you’re headed. To endure the different seasons of ministry, you need accountability and an action plan that integrates your faith, family, and career.

We understand the challenges of ministry.
There never seems to be enough time to focus on the important versus the urgent. As time rolls on, the pressure only seems to mount. Oftentimes, you’re left feeling stuck, buried, and burnt out.
This isn’t the way it should be.
While ministry may demand a certain level of sacrifice, you should never feel lost or on this journey alone.

Hear from the KINDLE Community
“I am thankful I had a District Executive who shared KINDLE with me at just the right time that I needed to grow and develop as a leader. To be honest I was burned out and in need of a reset of perspective and refreshment. Being reminded of my baptismal identity through my calling really encouraged me to surrender some struggles to the one who knows me, loves me, sees me and cares for me every day makes all the difference.”
“I started Classic KINDLE at a time when my congregation was going through several difficult transitions. I will admit to being hesitant to take on another commitment and lessons with so much going on. I was unsure how helpful it would be and if I would be able to practice what I was taught in KINDLE. However, there were valuable learnings and experiences that improved my leadership at a critical time.”
The topic, Stewardship of Time, touched my heart – through the discussions and conversations and learning that I don’t have good boundaries, but it’s something I’m going to work on! This module was so needed for me and so many other young DCEs who have a hard time establishing healthy boundaries with work.
