We are very excited to announce our newest program, The School of Ministry. This program will launch in January of 2022.

This program is for leaders desiring to strengthen their ministry muscle as well as those who feel called to pursue full-time ministry. It is convenient enough to commit one night a week, 2-hour class with childcare included, but also challenging enough to stretch any believer’s Biblical knowledge and leadership.
