Everything rises and falls on leadership. No church or ministry will rise above its leadership. This seminar will explore several very important areas pertaining to the development of leadership in the local church. It will include such matters as spiritual and lifestyle qualifications, particular responsibilities, styles of leadership, and how the church identifies and builds a leader.
This training is designed to assist pastors, deacons, trustees, teachers, ministry supervisors (i.e. Sunday School -general superintendent and departments, VBS, Awana, choir, outreach, etc.) and any others not listed that are looked upon as a leader in your church or potential leaders.
