Indigenous leadership development program for the Methodist Church (Lower Myanmar)
Indigenous Leadership Development Program (ILDP) caters to the changing spiritual and socio-economic needs of the leadership in the Methodist Church (Lower Myanmar). ILDP was constructed on research findings of the Ten-year Church Development Project of the church, evaluation of the leadership, and knowledge learned through D.Min. course work. The program was offered in three-week retreats focusing on spiritual formation, discipleship and stewardship, and church administration. Pre and post-tests of the three sessions assessed the increase in knowledge and effectiveness of leadership. Participant and program evaluation reports positive changes in the congregation and leadership due to greater spiritual and administrative development.
