Lads to Leaders

The theme for the year round and convention events is:  “Let Us Rise Up and Build” Nehemiah 2:17-18 Now is the time to build our families, churches, and communities.  Bible Bowl questions taken from Ezra and Nehemiah.  There are several ways for youth and adults to be involved.  Any questions please see Austin Gray.

While this is our first time participating, Lads to Leaders was founded in 1968 with the mission to develop youth into Christian leaders.  The following points of interest are from their website where you can find more information:

  • Is the oldest and largest leadership training program used by the churches of Christ.

  • Has over 50 years of proven methods with three generations now trained to be servants in the church.

  • Teaches God’s Word with no agenda—and stays out of the ditches, left and right (2 Chronicles 34:2).

  • Offers a wide range of books, materials and curriculum for year-round use.

  • Produces great materials by sound, respected authors that teach biblical concepts on timely subjects.

  • Brings the whole congregation together. Adults and senior citizens participate with children in completing events and activities(Titus 2:2-4).

  • Offers competitive and non-competitive events. (26 events are completely non-competitive.)

  • Offers Bartimaeus events for special needs participants of all ages.

  • Has events available for everyone ages 3-103.

  • Allows participants to learn how to deal with competition in a Christian manner. Competition is a real part of the real world. NOT learning how to deal with competition can be harmful as they deal with a competitive world and society. Selections are made in the church, as well (Acts 1:23-26).

  • Brings thousands together to worship in a traditional worship service under the oversight of a local eldership.
