LEAD - Men's Ministry
LEAD - Leadership, Education, and Development:
A men’s ministry training program
To inspire, train, and equip the men of Tapestry Community Church to be better spiritual leaders in the home and at work—and better husbands and fathers for those married—which in turn will enable them to become better leaders in the local church.
To have a body of men at Tapestry Community Church who are sufficiently inspired, trained, and equipped to grow in their sanctification and lead the church—also their wives and children for those married—into a deeper walk with Christ.
This is a three (3) year program wherein the men will complete a reading assignment each month, and then will meet once a month for a lecture style lesson covering the previous month’s reading.
