As a movement, we are focused on intentionally identifying, discipling, raising up, giving opportunities to and supporting both pastoral and lay leaders to attain the goal of ‘A thousand healthy churches in a generation’.


Our mission:

As part of the Association’s Gen1K Vision, we exist to foster a culture of exponential leadership development across our movement, supporting churches to RECOGNISE, RAISE, RELEASE and RESOURCE healthy leaders from every generation who will advance the Gospel by word, sign and deed. 

Our team incorporates Accreditation and Recognition, Baptist Children & Families, Baptist Youth Ministries, Baptist Special Religious Education & Regional Leadership Development Teams.
