New Leadership Development Institute Online

“TRAINING, EDUCATING, AND DEVELOPING LEADERSHIP IN THE 21ST CENTURY”

At the response to the educational needs within the Southern Conference, the Southern Conference Board of Directors confirmed the Leadership Development Institute (LDI) as a “Ministry of the Southern Conference” at its February 2016 board meeting.

The Southern Conference will hold programs and trainings, not only in person, but Zoom presentations via the Southern Conference innovative website (soc-ucc.org).

We are committed to equipping clergy, laity, and youth with practical skills and training that will contribute to building the kingdom of God and the beloved community through faith, hope and love as we seek to empower leaders within our local churches.

The Leadership Development Institute new programs and trainings will begin in December of 2017. Come grow with us!
