Who Are We?
I’m Doug Brown, the Founder and Strategic Coordinator with e3 Leadership Group and I would like to take three minutes to explain who we are, why we exist, what we do, how we go about doing it, and how you can participate and join us in making a better world.
In U.S. communities, we specialize in projects with immigrants and refugees. We help the immigrants become assimilated by assisting them with English Second Language training, U.S. Citizenship, Driver’s license, and Community assistance.
On college campuses, we work with International student ministries. Over one-million international students come to the U.S. each year. Many of them come from countries that are difficult to reach with the Gospel. Eighty percent of these students who move back to their country do so without ever stepping foot in an American’s home even though they would have liked to.
In Asia, we have a three-pronged approach:
- We build eternal friendships by sharing and demonstrating the Gospel of Jesus Christ;
- We grow healthy leaders in the church, business and educational world;
- We are engaged in making a better planet, a better world.
Why Do We Exist?
We exist to equip. We equip the emerging and existing leaders in the church, business and education world.
Why This Kind of Focus?
There is a leader crisis around the world. The fact is we need more leaders and we need better leaders across the board.
Seventy percent of leaders who fail in their leadership do so not due to their skill set or their vision, they fail due to lack of character. This is a huge problem. It is a crisis.
What Do We Do?
What we do is to focus on leader development — but not just “traditional” leader development which focuses on skills, knowledge, abilities and skills. These are essential and good but they are not good enough.
We need to build men and women in a holistic manner through a framework called Building Healthy Leaders. This model intentionally builds people holistically — spiritual, relational, character, mission and competencies.
Our training is transferable. We train Asian leaders in healthy leader development in order for them to train others. We come alongside these Asian partners and help them customize leadership pathways for their situation and culture.
How Do We Do This?
We do seven things:
- We listen to their reality.
- We build lasting friendships.
- We explore opportunities.
- We train them to train leaders.
- We partner.
- We coach.
- We network and resource with them with various leader tools.
We host short-term mission teams to Asia in order to assist our Asian partners and explore what God is doing in this part of the world.
We host healthy leader training workshops which transforms people, marriages, families and teams in the secular and sacred.
We host international student ministry on college campuses and cross-cultural ministry in our communities.
