A one-day retreat for elders, pastors and whole leadership teams to consider how to raise up the leaders they need.
Almost every church is looking for more leaders. More small group leaders, more ministry leaders, more elders, more people training as pastors and gospel workers. But where will all these leaders come from? How will we raise up a steady stream of quality leaders and not merely scratch around to plug gaps? What does it take to develop good leaders for every area of church life? The RTC Elders’ Retreat will explore this pressing issue.
This one-day retreat is designed to encourage and equip eldership or leadership teams in local churches. With biblical teaching, practical training, and time for team reflection, it is a great opportunity to think deeply together about leadership development in your church.
