Supporting Individuals
Christian Leadership Ministries provides creative development and training opportunities to enhance the leadership and talent potential of people as individuals.  Opportunities for personal and professional development include workshops and seminars, training courses, consultancy, coaching, mentoring and bespoke leadership development programmes.
We empower and enable individuals, tomorrow’s leaders, to think differently about serving others, to get excited about God’s call on their life and take their very next step in fulfilling their God-given purpose in their place of worship and/or the local community.
Examples include:
  • 360° Feedback Facilitation – using the CLMQ™, the UK’s first bespoke 360° tool   specifically developed for enhancing leadership within the Christian community.
  • Leadership & personal development coaching/mentoring
  • Skill & personal development training – participative workshops and seminars
  • Bespoke training and development programmes

Recommend a Leader

Do you know a Christian leader who is looking for someone to invest in their development as a leader?
If so, consider recommending them to one of Christian Leadership Ministries Development Programmes.  We treat each recommendation with great respect.  The leader you recommend will be notified of your recommendation, and our Founder, Oenca Fontaine, will personally follow up with them to help them decide if Christian Leadership Ministries is a good fit for them.  Recommend a Leader

Supporting Teams
Fact: People can achieve much more by working together with others rather than attempting to do things on their own. 
Building and maintaining successful leadership and management teams is not often a simple task.  The process becomes more problematic when new teams are formed; where there is a need to work closely with different people, new processes and/or new tasks.  However, we believe that effective teams really do help make successful organisations and an effective team is one that works well together and deals with conflicting views effectively.
Christian Leadership Ministries supports an organisations team development process by helping both individuals and teams become aware of their work based behaviours and the way they interact together.  We work with Christian organisations in the design and facilitation of team development workshops, team ‘away days’ and team building events.  We tend to do this in number of ways:
  • Facilitation of team development workshops – that explore any barriers to team effectiveness and support organisations find solutions to possible interpersonal conflict, in order to improve team cohesiveness and productivity.
  • Use of team profiling or 360° Degree style feedback tools to identify potential issues that may negatively impact team performance .
  • Bespoke training and development interventions.
  • Leadership, personal development or team coaching/mentoring support – to improve team effectiveness.
So if you want your leadership or management teams to be more than the sum of their parts, exceed expectations, rather than ‘just get by’, be a team that everyone wants to work with and be a part of, then help is at hand!

Supporting Churches (or Christian organisations)
Churches and organisations don’t change.  People do, one at a time, one action at a time.
At Christian Leadership Ministries, we start any organisational development programme with the end in mind and work with you to understand how your existing culture, ways of doing things, helps or hinders your efforts in moving toward achieving your vision and mission.  We then work with you in moving your organisation’s culture – people’s habitual attitudes, behaviours and practices – to align more closely with the organisational outcome you want to achieve.
Some of the ways we inspire churches or Christian organisations to change, grow and succeed include:
  • Strategy, vision and organisational values formation or development
  • Culture change interventions
  • Congregation or staff engagement activities
  • Bespoke Training and Development Programmes


The development of the UK’s first 360-Degree Feedback Tool ‘specifically’ for Christian Leadership, has arrived!
The development process involved:
  • Over 12 months desk-based book research
  • Input from a number or churches, including: Methodist; Church of God of Prophecy; Church of God (7th Day); Seventh Day Adventist; Church of England; and others
  • Over 85 hours of rigorous consultation with Pastors, spiritual leaders & Christian professionals
  • Validity & Reliability testing by a Occupational Psychologist and Talent Management Consultant (Christian)
We are currently engaged in researching the ‘Christian Landscape’ from the perspective of the major church denominations & Christian networks across Birmingham, West Midlands.
We are currently working with a number of people/organisations who are actively engaged in Phase One of the piloting & roll out plan.


What is 360 Degree Feedback?
360 Degree Feedback or 360 Degree Assessment, also known as multi-rater feedback, multi source feedback or multi source feedback, has evolved to become a very effective leadership development tool.  The term “360” refers to the 360 degrees of a circle, with an individual figuratively in the centre of the circle.
Feedback about a person’s leadership behaviours and their leadership impact is provided by direct reports, peers, supervisors and internal others.  360-degree feedback also includes a self-assessment and where appropriate, feedback from external sources, i.e. other interested stakeholders.  Today, most 360-degree feedback assessments are conducted online and they typically provide both numerical and qualitative feedback (written comments).


The CLMQ™ 360 assessment is designed to measure the Christian leadership behaviours most important to an individual leader or a church/other Christian organisation’s success.
Leaders within organisations use 360 feedback surveys to get a better understanding of their leadership strengths and areas for development.  By comparing self-perceptions to the perceptions of other, an individual is able to clearly see how his or her leadership behaviour both impacts and is impacted by those with whom he or she works.
When an individual receives his or her 360 feedback results, he or she is typically provided with some type of coaching in which the individual analyses the report, identifies strengths and areas for improvement and develops action plans.  Supporting academic studies has found that those individuals who receive some type of coaching on their feedback, and set goals for development, experience significantly greater improvement than those who simply participate in the 360 and receive their feedback reports.
360 Feedback can also be a useful development tool to develop the leadership potential for people who are not currently in a specific leadership position/role.  Strictly speaking, a "non-leader" 360 assessment is not measuring feedback from 360 degrees since there are no direct reports, but the same principles still apply. 360 Feedback for potential leaders is a useful way to help people be more effective in their current roles, and also to help them better understand what areas they should focus on if they want to move into more a leadership or management position.
As churches or other Christian organisations rely more heavily on teamwork, cooperation and communication to improve productivity and performance, 360 degree feedback is becoming an increasingly useful tool in order to support their overall organisational growth and people development strategies.
