Leading Into The Future
Everyone says that movements/organizations rise and fall based on leadership. I believe that is true. Thus it is imperative upon us to raise up the next generation of leaders that understand "who God is" and "who we are”. We need leaders who understand how to lead from a place of position in Christ rather than seeking a position. This kind of leadership development is a major transformation in style, content, and outcome. Join us as we explore some of these issues.
