LEAD WELL CONFERENCE

EQUIPPING leaders to change lives through the power of jesus christ

FRIDAY 6pm - 9pm, AUGUST 12 | SATURDAY 8am - 2pm, AUGUST 13

REGISTER TODAY

A good leader can make the difference between life and death, between a healthy marriage and one that's falling apart. Between kids becoming who God created them to be or who the world tells them they are . Good leaders develop people, build cohesive teams, and hold themselves to a higher standard.  You don't have to be the smartest person in the room to be a good leader, but you must keep growing! Because everyone deserves to be led well. Join New Community for a weekend of powerful teaching where you will grow as a leader who creates positive change.  Pastor Kevin James, Margaret Mitchell Green, Dr. Johnny Parker and Dr. Rod Dempsey will teach biblical principles, and practical strategies to equip and encourage you as a leader.  You can be the leader you were meant to be and New Community can help. Join us and get ready to be equipped to lead well in this new season!

WINS WHEN THE LEADER

10AM BREAKOUT SESSIONS

Leading from Your Backstage (The Experience) | Dr. Johnny Parker

Join us and discuss true leadership and how to cultivate the influence that brings positive change no matter who you are or who’s in charge.



Three Directions of Spiritual Formation | Dr. Rod Dempsey
