The Spiritual Leadership Development Team will steward the mission of equipping lay and clergy leaders of all ages for building up the local church. This will be a group of eight disciples who are passionate about equipping spiritual leaders and who are committed to pouring into the ways we, as a conference, can strategically foster a culture of spiritual leadership excellence.

This team is intentionally working closely with the Office of Leadership Formation and Development and the Board of Ordained Ministry so that siloed programming will be replaced by strong collaboration. They are working with the Board of Laity supporting and guiding their effort while creating connections with Next Gen disciple-making.
