You will have the opportunity to experience our robust line-up of General Sessions in our newly opened permanent sanctuary. Learn more on our Sacred Spaces website.

Due to extensive renovations currently in progress, this year’s Leadership Institute has been designed to provide the best hospitality experience possible, while creating an impactful leadership experience.

Highlights of the 2017 schedule include:

  • Pre-Institute offerings on Wednesday have been expanded (nearly twice as many sessions to choose from) to provide great opportunities to dig deep into a wide variety of ministry specific topics.
  • The Opening Session of Leadership Institute is Wednesday evening, September 27.
  • Leadership Institute 2017 is comprised of 7 General Sessions, led by innovative, nationally-recognized speakers and developed with a focus on practical ministry tools, leadership growth strategies and inspired vision for ministry.
