1. Personal Transformation – Transformed Christ-like leaders are committed to Personal Transformation, a state of being transformed.
2. Relational Transformation – Transformed Christ-like leaders practice personal transformation and builds relational connections for transformation.
3. Community Transformation - Transformed followers of Christ want nothing more than to see their spheres of influence embrace a relationship with the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Personal Transformation: The leader has a clear vision of and vision path to his/her true self and is making significant, measurable progress toward achievement of that vision

• Emergence of preserving leadership: Defined leadership that requires enormous personal maturity and assurance in who God called them to be and to do.
