Equipping & Developing Healthy Leaders

With the Leadership Academy - an educational program hosted by industry and theological experts - the goal is to equip, educate and develop rostered and lay leaders within the Metro D.C. Synod with the knowledge and tools they need to lead vibrant ministries. Most sessions are held on Zoom due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

From developing a successful planned giving program to learning about communication tools to better tell your story, you can expect to leave each session uplifted and empowered to serve in the capacity God is calling you.
