As leaders, we all have to learn to master the ability to move on well from the inevitable “dust” of disappointment of leading in church and ministry, failures and successes and what people think and say. Through 35 years of leadership experience, John will share how everyone can learn to do this well. Invaluable insight for all leaders in whatever capacity they serve. John Kirkby began CAP in 1996 with only £10 and a passion to see the poor set free. Together with CEO Matt Barlow, he has led the charity and seen it grow to transform over 21,500 lives every year. With 25 years of leadership experience including planting and team-leading the Light Church, John was named Sunday Times Best Leader, alongside Matt. His heart is to inspire others to unlock their own potential by looking honestly at the challenges faced in leadership.

Leon is the Lead Pastor of Life Central Church (Halesowen) and as a ‘local lad’ has a passion for not only the local church but also for the region and beyond. The Church is now ‘multi site’ meeting in 3 locations with a newly refurbished building and extensive community work impacting hundreds of people every week.
