Leadership Resources

We believe that everything rises and falls on leadership. Though leadership can be defined in a variety of ways, at Next Level Church, we define leadership as the ability to effectively engage and influence others toward using their gifts and passions to edify and advance the Kingdom of God.

Thank you for choosing to use your gifts within this House to lead people to become fully engaged followers of Jesus! We hope that you will find these resources helpful in equipping you to lead with success and confidence.
