Our leadership philosophy at Lifehouse is a bottom to top approach. Our goal as leaders at Lifehouse is not to impart our ministry on others. Our goal is to help others identify their God given gifts / passions and then assist them in developing their unique ministry.. The Word of God has called leaders to equip the church for the ministry, not to be the ministers. We believe people will flourish in ministry and be more fulfilled with life if we as leaders can empower them to serve where their passion lies.
