Multiplying mission in Moldova

Innovista's Tempo Leadership Course helped a pastor from Chisinau, Moldova, multiply the mission of his church by empowering his youth group.

In Chisinau, Moldova, a local pastor was struggling with a problem. He had a lot of young people in his church, but he didn’t know how to engage them, nor did he have a youth leader. So he asked Innovista for help. After joining the Tempo Leadership Course, he acquired the tools he needed to assess his church, develop a strategy, and empower his congregation.

The training in how to build teams enabled the pastor to identify not one, but three youth ministry leaders. They grew a core team of 12, who were all given different responsibilities. Under their stewardship, the group has more than doubled in size, from 20 to over 40 young people.

The pastor – equipped by Innovista – continues to mentor the three youth leaders, who in turn are developing their team. Now, 80% of the young people are active in service. As a result, they are growing in faith as they put the teachings of Jesus into practice. Ministry is also more sustainable because it is based on a team, rather than an individual.

The Tempo Leadership Course helps leaders to clarify vision, develop their team, and lead with confidence, so they can see their communities changed by Jesus.
