The 2018/2019 recipient of the Neil Josephson Leadership Award is Lighthouse Community Church in Sarnia, ON!
The proposal submitted by Lighthouse Community Church highlights the recent growth and development they have experienced in their community and the "growing pains" that come with that. This led them to plan a weekend retreat for their leadership team and staff members. Their hope for the weekend is to come away with renewed energy, vision, and strength. In addition to individual and team growth, creating a five-year plan is a practical and tangible goal of the weekend. They hope this will help them to refocus their mission and vision to further God's Kingdom at Lighthouse, and accommodate further expansion of their community.
The Neil Josephson Award was established by the ECCC Leadership Board in 2008 to honour the significant leadership passion modelled by Neil in numerous Covenant ministries, including his work as President of Covenant Bible College. The award is given annually to a congregation or ECCC-related ministry that seeks to intentionally develop deeper leadership within their ministry. A maximum of $2,000 is reimbursed upon submission of actual costs.
