NEXT: a school of leadership, calling and action

The heart of this school is identity and character development through understanding calling and leadership. Throughout this 12-week course, we will focus on growth in character - to know yourself...your gifts and your strengths, gain leadership skills, and put action to your passions/ministry. We will look at the life of Jesus for our model of authentic leadership. There will be opportunities to teach, disciple, lead, succeed, fail, and live together in community and all that that entails.
