What Is The Leadership development Intensive?

In addition to being part of Christ Presbyterian's leadership training mechanism for men and women, the Leadership Development Intensive is an opportunity to interact and be in community with pastoral staff, as well as process historic Christianity, theology and the Christ Presbyterian vision on the deepest level we have available. Previous participants also derived great value from friendship and camaraderie that developed through the process.

Who Can Participate?

Leadership Development Intensive is for any man or woman who wishes to participate, and who is willing to uphold the high level of commitment that is required. Participation is also required for those who have accepted a nomination to be considered as a deacon or elder.
