The Leadership Development Program at Locality Church is designed to be a hands on, practical ministry and leadership growth experience. The duration of LDP is September 10th- May 1st, excluding school holidays and breaks. During a participants experience, they will work on multiple teams, partake in Bible studies, and hear from leaders inside and outside of Locality. Participation in this program is on a volunteer basis and thus any hours past the required 5 during a week is up to the participant's decision.
Spiritual Development: The ultimate goal of the Locality Leadership Development Program is to raise up leaders in the Church who want to spend their lives following Christ.
Ministry Discovery: The LDP will help guide each participant toward or away from full time vocational ministry; either outcome is celebrated and welcomed. We want to equip leaders for future ministry inside and outside of the church, as well by building disciples of Christ.
Professional Skills Development: The LDP will grow participants in their abilities to work on a team, speak in front of others, use higher reasoning and thinking skills as well as problem solving.
