Each course will equip leaders to better lead and work with others, not only in the church, but also in the community and throughout the world. In the Basic Course, topics such as servant and spiritual leadership, caring ministries, basic communication skills, sharing your faith, and leading meetings will enhance your knowledge and skill as a leader.
