In our era we are facing a tremendous problem. The most important ingredient for community transformation is leadership. Yet most ministries do not have an intentional process to grow leaders. Solid leadership within an urban ministry organization is critical for sustainability. In this course, Alvin Sanders will address the challenges of developing indigenous urban leaders. He shares a model of how an urban ministry can create and maintain a leadership “pipeline” filled and flowing to guarantee a stable supply of skilled leaders.
Dr. Alvin Sanders has a personal mission to be with God, love his family, and invest in those who invest in the poor. In 25 years of ministry he has served as an urban church planter, denominational leader, and university professor. Educationally, he is a graduate of Cincinnati Christian University, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School, and Miami (OH) University. Presently he serves as a senior vice president with World Impact, which is a Christian mission organization committed to resourcing urban disciple-makers. He and his wife Caroline have been married since 1994 and are the proud parents of two children.
