LEAD is designed to impart how we do leadership here at City. We lead through our core values. How we lead is important to us as it models our culture and what we believe are non-negotiables.”  Pastor David

101 - Team Leader

This course will focus on the general topic of leadership, exploring the diverse ways in which leadership is expressed by an individual and perceived by an audience. We will review the issue of ethics and integrity.

101 - Group Leader

This course will focus on leading a small group. Primarily through role play, we will put into practice some of the most effective strategies for maintaining a positive flow of group discussion.

201 - Groups Coach

Group coaches play a critical role in fulfilling the vision of City Church. Group coaches shepherd, encourage and train group leaders. Working in partnership with the Groups Administrators, the primary focus of Group Coaches is to care for, equip and send out Group Leaders.

301 - Pastoral Leadership

This course covers the application of what we believe. Throughout this class, the senior pastors will confirm that participants understand how Jesus demonstrated the pastoral role. Participants who move to this level of leadership are expected to hold in high value: (1) personal influence, (2) relational building, (3) team building, (4) team work, and (5) problem solving, including being part of the solution. Finally, we will cover the topic of implicit bias and how it operates in group settings.

401 - Ordination

This is an applied experience with pastoral leaders now serving in specific areas of ministry. Included here are expectations for (and subsequent evaluations of) personal accountability to the senior pastors or members of the pastoral team. Those who complete this course receive their ministerial ordination certificate and are added to the list of approved ministers for baby dedications, baptisms, funerals, and weddings (or other church-officiated events).
