LEADERSHIP INSTITUTE 

 

A key strategy for the future of the EPC is creating a leadership development culture as the denomination transitions from a period of transfer growth to a goal of long-term sustainable transformational growth. The second annual Leadership Institute is the premier building block to implementing that strategy. This year, 11 tracks provide a wide variety of options that can help you hone your ministry skills. Click here for more information and a complete lineup of tracks.
