L.E.A.D. (Leadership, Edification, and Development) is a 6-week summer program to recruit, train and develop servant leaders. The L.E.A.D. program was born out of the vision for “One More”, that is for each of us to bring one more life for the Gospel. We are challenging you to bring one more friend, and for each servant-leader to reproduce one more. Christ Central wants to double our servant-leaders, but we want to double it with trained, developed and healthy servant-leaders.
