Understanding that effective church ministry depends on both pastors and lay leaders, the Central Conference wants to provide training opportunities for local Covenant church lay leaders so that they too, can feel confident and prepared to live into their call serving the local church. We are calling this the LEAD (Lay Leader Equipping and Developing) Initiative.

As a part of this initiative we are making available workshops and a toolbox with resources we hope are helpful to pastors and church leaders.

LEAD Workshops
These workshops are especially designed for local church lay leaders. They will be offered in several locations throughout the Central Conference in hopes that no one will have to travel too far to attend. There will be three different workshops offered in a three year time frame that will give guidance in what it means to be a healthy, missional leader, in a healthy missional church, and also orient lay leaders to the many resources available through our Central Conference office.
