Seminars

Shorter classes that are great for small groups and nurturing your lay leaders

In this program we offer many shorter classes on different topics. Seminars began by us asking the question, "What do lay leaders need to know about ________?" But many of the topics are of interest to all the people in your church such as small groups and Sunday School. We encourage church leaders to pick a seminar and work through it as a group. The seminars will add a spiritual dimension to board meetings as you reflect together on its teaching.
