The Ministry Leadership Development program (MLDP) is designed to equip current and future leaders of our church for the awesome responsibility and privilege of leadership. The curriculum consists of training in basic gospel identity and application, Reformed theology, ECO polity, the role of church officers, discipleship and missional community, biblical stewardship and worldview, and the strategic vision of First Presbyterian Church.
The training is open to all church members, especially those who are currently serving in or feel called to a leadership role in the church. Completion of the MLDP is a requirement to be nominated for all elected offices of the church.
Please contact Susan Stewart to sign up or for more information (565.0966 or firstname.lastname@example.org.)
Our current series of sessions are held Sunday afternoons from 3:00-5:00pm in Fellowship Hall, and Wednesday evenings from 6:00-8:00pm in Room 307, April through October.
