The Kingdom Leadership Symposium

 Saturday, February 27th from 10am-4pm

Do you know how ordinary people become extraordinary leaders?

In order to become better in any area of our lives, it takes leadership. We will never maximize our God-given potential if we don’t personally take responsibility for leading ourselves to success. 

A part of leading ourselves to success involves being mentored by others who can help us get to where we want to be. We invite you to get access to the minds of highly educated and skilled leadership scholars, who can help guide you on your journey to success.

Whether you are local or in another city, you can experience this one-of-a-kind, leadership symposium. Get ready to hear from several doctorally-educated leadership scholars on different topics concerning leadership! 

You will learn profound insights about being a leader in our disrupted societal landscape, and how to shift your ministry, family, business, and your life for success. After listening to each presenter’s lecture, you can also ask questions and get sound leadership advice to help you in any area of leadership.
