The GROW! Curriculum is designed to meet the criteria for use by Lay Servant Ministries as well as within the life of leadership in a local church. It specifically addresses best practices for leading in liminal spaces – caught between what used to work and what we don’t yet know will work.

The focus for the first four sessions is on the development of personal leadership practices. The second four sessions (to be offered in the fall) look more closely at personal leadership within community.

This 8-module course meets the same requirement as “Equipping God’s People” does for those in the Local Church Lay Servant, Certified Lay Servant or Lay Speaker programs.  Pastors and leaders in the church are encouraged to take the course together however, this course is for anyone who wants to deepen their faith.
