lay leader training toronto 2023LLT toronto date


The training is designed to help followers of Jesus carry out their calling of making disciples, both inside and outside the church. Increasing numbers of laity are asking us how they can share the gospel more effectively and lead others in this changing culture. They also wish to be further equipped and affirmed for ministry in the church. We are answering that call and will be providing a module with in-class sessions on a variety of key topics.
