Leadership Clinics

March 2, 2020

These daylong workshops are for pastors, lay leaders, youth leaders, parents, educators and those forming faith in the community. You don’t need to be ordained or in a ministry role to take advantage of this opportunity to learn!

Leadership Clinics take place on March 2, before Pastors and Leaders 2020/Deep Faith begins. You can register for a Leadership Clinic by itself or in addition to your Pastors and Leaders 2020/Deep Faith registration.
