Become a leader who is biblically informed and biblically prepared for leadership.
One of the greatest needs of the church is for leadership that is biblically informed, fully devoted to Christ, and prepared for their leadership role.
This track is an answer to this need and works for lay leaders and bi-vocational pastors. Our program is built around the biblical requirements found especially in the Pastoral Epistles (1 Timothy 3, 5, and Titus 1), and divide into three sections:
- What are the biblical requirements for church leadership, and are you willing to do the work?
- How to identify and prepare future leaders
- How to nurture your current and future leaders
Along with the classes below we also offer several Certificates to help you develop leaders.
This program is very much under construction, but we anticipate completion by 2020.
