Leadership Central

Onboarding and resourcing aspiring leaders!


Welcome to one of the most exciting adventures in your walk with Christ: leading or teaching others!  You’ll find that as you begin serving others, you learn as much, if not more, than those you lead.  Jesus Christ’s power becomes very evident when we are out on a limb, trusting Him and seeking His direction.


“’My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.’  Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me.” 

1 Corinthians 12:9


Our goal is to orient, mentor, train and release you to serve God in the way He has designed you to serve so that you can experience Christ’s power flow through you.
