Ministry Leadership Certificate Update

Josh Lane, Director of Leadership Education

The MLC second semester is off to a great start. The students are currently going through a class that covers the Gospel, Salvation, and other religions and is taught by Todd Miles from Western Seminary. One of the great highlights of this year's MLC is diversity in how God is using the students in church leadership, but unity in their desire to become more useful in ministry. God has been using the MCL to equip these leaders who are serving in various ministry contexts (full-time staff, bi-vocational, elders, etc) for more effective ministry. With their varied backgrounds and ministry experience they are being challenged by the material and each other. Coming up as part of the MLC program will be the Preaching Seminar with guest speakers Jeff Louie, Joe Brown, Jim Culp, and Paul Thome. The Preaching Seminar is open for all churches, staff, and lay leaders. March 15th, 9:30 to 3:30 at Solano Valley Church in Fairfield. The cost is $30 and lunch is provided.
