Why is this event important?
The church works best when leaders are enabled and equipped to lead. This event is filled with solid teaching and geared to equip all church members and members of the community to be better leaders in the sphere of influence. This is also a good place for our FPC teams to gather AS TEAMS and bring greater definition.
Who are the typical attendees for this event? This event is targeted to leaders. Many people have a misconceptions that they are not a leader. One phrase that frequently is stated is “anyone with influence is a leader”. It’s not a matter of if you have influence, it’s a matter of how will you leverage that influence in your business or organization. This event is available to businessmen and women as well as the the stay at home mom.
