Next Generation

Emerge – calling all emerging leaders!

Starting on Wednesday 27th January 2021, we’re excited to announce the launch of our newest Next Gen initiative called Emerge.

What’s it all about?

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 18-25, 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 will start on Wednesday 27th January 2021, meeting once a month at 7:30pm throughout the year.

The first few meetings will take place on Zoom due to Covid restrictions. We hope to be able to meet in person as the year progresses.

How can I get involved?

If you or someone you know might be suitable for Emerge, please email LBC’s Next Gen Champion Deb Chamberlain – Deb will give you all the information you need about how to get involved.
