Upcoming Events

This leadership summit is just for you!  We have lots of training, equipping and spiritually refreshing things in store for you!

Our theme is:

One of our commitments to you as a leader is that we want to build a bigger table of leadership, and one of the ways to do that is to bring in the best voices for you to hear.   We strive to build a community of like minded people who are together on this journey of service in the Kingdom.  We use 2 Cor 3:18 as a source for building a bigger table- " And we ALL..."  As we strive to reflect the glory of the Lord, we must make sure that we make room for everyone.
