The Making of a Leader


You don’t need a title to be a leader: all of us have influence. What matters is how we use it. God has called every Christian to shape their family, their workplace, their church or ministry. He wants you to do it well.

This one-day conference will equip and inspire you to “lead with all diligence” (Romans 12:3). It’s free and all are welcome to attend.
