LEAD One events are regional, one-day interactive leadership training events presented by USMB for church leaders or teams of leaders.
LEAD One events provide an opportunity to learn more about a specific theme or topic in a relaxed and casual setting. These events help build networks where pastors can be encouraged, share ideas and build lasting relationships.
The greatest benefit is gained when a pastor or leader brings a leadership team to the LEAD One. Collaborative discussions following the event often bring positive change to your church or leadership.
These events are designed to build upon each other, therefore several events are planned in each region. Attending each LEAD One in your region adds more “tools” for the leader’s “tool chest.”
The events are free to attend. Each participant is simply asked to contribute a small amount to the host church to offset the cost of snacks and the lunch meal.
LEAD One events generally start with coffee and light snack in the morning and end by mid- afternoon. These events are most often held during the week in order to keep your weekend schedule-free.
Depending upon the region, there are typically between 20 and 50 people in attendance. These small-sized venues provide good opportunities for dynamic group discussions throughout the event.
Upcoming LEAD One events
Seven previous LEAD One events were focused on discipleship and our One Mission: local, national and global. The feedback was very positive and participants were encouraged to be regularly and actively on mission both for themselves and for their church as a whole. We learned that being collaborative together means that we‘ll experience more impact for the kingdom. And we were reminded that God is using our conference of churches in unique and dynamic ways and we should be ready as he calls us to even more!
The next series of LEAD One events is planned to begin in October, 2018.
