David Shearman has spent the greater portion of his life equipping, encouraging, training and releasing others into leadership roles. His desire is simply to empower others to see further, reach higher and accomplish more – and this borne out of a “presence centred, Spirit led” approach.
Since stepping down as senior leader of the Christian Centre, Nottingham, to David is able to devote more time to equipping emerging leaders. This happens in one of two ways:
- Leadership Academy Retreats
“David has always inspired, resourced and championed me as a church leader. As a 15year old, whilst visiting my then home church, he prophesied over me and a call began to emerge. In 2007 I became the leader of a small church. Through his wisdom, encouragement and input I have grown as a leader and Arena church has seen a good measure of growth that now operates out of two campuses and influences many hundreds each month through its community programmes, outreaches and services. His influence over my life has been immense! David is a premier leader and I am sure the best is yet to come!”
