LEAD is a dynamic, personalized leadership development experience. This five-day innovative process equips you as a ministry leader to make significant progress toward the fulfillment of God’s purpose for your life and ministry.

Are you going through a transition in your life or ministry? Are you facing challenges in your current leadership role? Do you desire greater ministry effectiveness?

This program is created for ministry leaders who have completed a minimum of five years in full-time ministry. LEAD is designed to help you more effectively navigate the unique challenges you face in today's ever-changing world. For those who are married, LEAD is designed for a husband and wife to participate together. Please be aware that married couples are required to both attend.
