Leading Well: Children and Youth Ministry

18th November 2019 | 1:00 pm - 20th November 2019 | 11:30 am

Equipping in leadership with Biblical teaching.

This is a fantastic opportunity to consider what Biblical leadership is, in the context of an intensive residential setting. Come along and spend time with ministry peers to develop your own leadership skills and consider how to nurture, train and equip volunteer leaders on your ministry teams.

Mel Lacy, Director of Youth and Children at Keswick Ministries and Executive Director of Growing Young Disciples, said: “It is aimed at equipping leaders to lead well, to raise up new leaders, to know their own leadership style and perhaps develop new leadership abilities. It is a great week with lots of time to think, to pray and to learn.”
