The Leadership Journey--logo.png

The Leadership Journey is a year-long “covenant journey” designed for church staff leaders who desire to discover and develop their full potential as a God-called servant-leader.
Focusing on the spirit, soul, and body, church leaders will be encouraged and challenged to grow toward spiritual, emotional, intellectual and physical health in their role as a leader.

The Leadership Journey  will consist of 9 meetings over a 12 month period and will include assessments, readings, peer learning experiences, and other resources focused on the personal and professional qualities of leadership. 

The Leadership Journey will meet on the third Tuesday of most months at 2:00 pm. 
If you are interested in this leadership experience or would like more information,
please contact Phil Young at or (865)693-9097. 

Resources for Leadership Study

     Our Leadership Team has made various resources available to you that have been reviewed by our team to give you a broad range of authors and subjects that they believe are worth your time.
