Is there anything we can learn from the successes and failures of these ancient kings? It turns out, there’s a lot!

Foundations of Effective Leadership
Leadership—how would you define it? How can you be an effective leader? The Foundations in Effective Leadership course defines leadership as moving people from where they are to a better place. During this course you will discover how Jesus set the example of being a servant leader and what leadership principles can be learned from His example. But to be an effective servant leader you first need to look at yourself. The kind of person you are is the kind of leader you will be. Are you ready to become an effective servant leader? You can begin today.
Leading From your Strengths
This course is designed to help you not only discover your God-given strengths, but to also give you a foundation for building an even closer leadership team.
