Churches are invited to bring their ministry leaders to one of the largest mainline church leadership events in the country, bringing together leaders who share a passion for strengthening the local church. Over the past 20 years, nearly 30,000 leaders have returned to their congregations and communities ready to lead with renewed confidence, rekindled faithfulness, creative ideas and a fresh assurance to thrive in ministry. Year over year, church leaders return to Leadership Institute, bringing a team to maximize the impact of practical leadership principles and visionary teaching with a spirit of renewal.
