Due to not meeting the minimum number of participants for the program, LEAD3D planners have postponed the upcoming session. Please check https://www.facebook.com/LEAD3D for information on future sessions!

LEAD3D is a youth leadership development program designed for juniors and seniors in high school. Over the course of two weekend retreats, students from across Ohio will evaluate natural leadership tendencies, learn about principles of Christ-centered leadership and take steps toward discovering and developing a personal leadership style. Intentional discipleship by a trusted mentor throughout the program will draw on cross-generational wisdom while living out our desire to disciple other Kingdom leaders.

Students are paired with a mentor from their congregation to partner with in this process.

The cost is $495 per participating pair.

The next program dates are March 10-11, 2017, and Aug. 18-19, 2017. (Full attendance is required for youth and mentors.) For more information and to apply, visit https://www.facebook.com/LEAD3D or email info@lead3d.org.

The Ohio Conference is offering a $200 scholarship per mentor/mentee pair for those participants from Ohio Conference congregations. The Conference will give up to five scholarships, awarded on a first-come, first-served basis.
