High School Leadership

High School Leadership

Develop your leadership potential and grow personally, spiritually, relationally


High School Leadership Training Week and Training programs challenge students to grow in all areas of life. Most importantly, a person’s leadership influence flows from a healthy and growing relationship with God and a clear understanding of our identity in Christ. Building upon a spiritual foundation, students will learn communication skills that will enhance their relationships with friends, family, and throughout their community.

Students will:

  • grow in self-confidence
  • identify their unique strengths and leadership gifts
  • gain experience in team building, leading groups, communicating with confidence, conflict resolution, and goal setting
