Building an Extraordinary Volunteer Culture$199

Volunteers are the lifeline for ministry. Without them, we couldn't possibly do all that God has put on our hearts to do. And yet, leading volunteers can be some of the most challenging leadership moments we face. What do you do with a volunteer who has their own agenda? How do you keep volunteers motivated and inspired? How do I lead volunteers as a volunteer myself? We'll tackle all of these questions and more as we seek to understand what it looks like to lead volunteers well.
Open to all.

Ministry Leadership Essentials$199

As church staff, we have the remarkable privilege of leading teams of individuals to accomplish great outcomes. Yet nothing about this task is easy. Leadership is challenging, complex, frustrating and still enormously rewarding. Extraordinary leaders are essential for thriving churches and yet most of us arrive in leadership seats ill-equipped for the human resource challenges that lay before us. If you are new to leadership or are eager to grow your leadership skills, this class is for you.
Open to all.

Open to all.
