Emerge is about gathering and inputting into the next generation of emerging Christian leaders. This is not just about church leadership. Alongside those in potential church leadership roles, we also feel a call from God to raise godly teachers, lawyers, politicians, doctors, and other professionals out in the world as well.

Who is Emerge for?

Emerge is specifically aimed at those aged 16-25, who may already be in a current leadership position, whether in church or in society, or they might be someone with great leadership potential.

The aim of emerge is threefold:

  1. Relationship – to gather and get to know other emerging leaders of a similar age from other churches in the Black Country.
  2. Teaching – to receive practical, spiritual input about character and leadership development.
  3. Discipleship – to have time to discuss, challenge and disciple each other.


Emerge meet on the last Thursday of every month. please email emerge@loveblackcountry.org.uk to find out when the next gathering will take place.
