Leadership Development

 

a few resources

 

The development of emerging and established leaders is a critical element of the culture we need to share if we are going to collectively make a difference.  Leaders know who they are, where they are going and how to get others to go along with them.  Leaders help others accomplish all that God created them to do in ways that are life-giving and effective.  The Kingdom of God needs men and women who will lay down their lives to partner and help others partner in the advancement of the Kingdom throughout the 80+ million people in our region and around the globe.  

 

Throughout the region there are various opportunities to be developed.  You will want to connect directly with someone in your geographical area for a full menu of those resources.  Connect here.
