David Shearman’s retirement from his role as the Senior Leader of the Christian Centre in September 2013 afforded the Trust the opportunity to reconsider how its objectives should be best delivered.
David is viewed by many as a leader of leaders, with a breadth of experience and influence rarely matched. His passion to train, mentor and equip successive generations of leaders leaves him uniquely positioned to fulfil the desires of the Trust.
To that end, we have established a partnership which will see us work hand in hand on a number of fronts.
Within his Cathcon role, and as part of his continuing ministry, David will be involved in a variety of different things. He will:
- Be taking the lead in delivering Cathcon Trust’s leadership development programmes
- Continue to be available for speaking engagements – should you wish to explore this with us, please contact the office
- Work relationally amongst the churches within his home city of Nottingham
- Selectively mentor – if this would be of interest to you, again we ask that you contact the office
- Continue to work within Justice, including an ongoing commitment to CSW
- Remain active as an author – initially this is likely to be by way of blogs; in time we wouldn’t rule out more books!
Whilst we are committed to ‘giving David away’ whenever possible, we trust that it is understood that we are, where appropriate, seeking to facilitate further ministry.
This allows us to continue our ongoing commitments, which include a desire to support other ministries and facilitate certain elements of David’s ministry – such as overseas leaders’ conferences – that are unlikely to be able to fund themselves.
