The cost of the program is $350 US which includes some meals; more information will follow shortly detailing hotel options.
Participants begin the certification process by applying to the L.E.A.D. program and, upon acceptance, attending the Retreat offered by the Office of Formation and Leadership Development.
During the retreat participants are introduced to the program and basic principles of leadership development.
In addition, individuals will work with faculty to create an individualized L.E.A.D. Action Plan that spells out their goals and requirements for completion of the Certificate Program.
The purpose of L.E.A.D. is to offer lay leaders of UFMCC an opportunity to deepen their spiritual growth, develop their existing skills and furnish them with additional leadership tools so that they may be effective leaders in the church and the world. The L.E.A.D curriculum will engage a variety of methods that include self-paced, instructor-led,and seminar-based training to support each individual’s learning style.
“Attending the L.E.A.D. Retreat enriched my journey with guidance, support and a spiritual high I had not experienced before. As I completed courses on the L.E.A.D. plan, my confidence grew and I received enrichment to help me become a better leader for my church and UFMCC in the future.”
