Next Level Leaders Academy: Leading through a pandemic

Saturday, January 30, 2021, 8:30 AM - 4:00 PM

The BWC’s Next Level Leaders Academy will host a one-day online training on leading the church through a pandemic on Jan. 30 from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. the event will be led by Rev. Olu Brown, Bob Jennings, and Dr. Don McLaughlin.

To adequately prepare for reopening your church, one must understand where the church is at the present time in relation to some of the projected realities we have faced in the wake of this pandemic. Thus, church leaders must begin processing through the possibilities and planning for the future.  This training is designed to assist ministry and lay leaders in assessing the steps the church will need to consider, along with some practical options for moving a ministry forward.

The cost is $20.
