leadership development

Leadership Area: our developing concept of teaching, training, and helping leaders in their struggle to identify and address personal and professional issues.


In 15 years, our older students and younger adults will be in their prime to fulfill our purpose. This suggests that we must now plan and prepare for the success of the next generation: those now ages 18 – 35. We want to pass on a clear thinking church, passionate for God’s glory. Biblical, rather than cultural; understanding how changing one thing has positive and negative impact on all other things; personhood and integrity issues.

We need healthy and adjusted “insiders” who understand and like the people, culture, and direction of the greater community where we live and can see how God would like to work.

biblical training

Biblical Training: resources to help church leaders become effective biblical communicators.


We believe that a prayerful, exegetical approach to the Scriptures best equips church leaders for self, church and community understanding. We need to learn not only the content, but also the intent of Scripture in order to develop as effective biblical communicators.
