Destiny Leadership Academy exists as an on-ramp for those who have a passion or curiosity about leading in the local church. DLA is a program for those who want to go to the next level in their leadership abilities within the context of a ministry atmosphere. To enhance your learning experience, you will be involved in hands-on ministry and learn from the DHC team.
Who is DLA for? DLA is for people who have expressed a commitment, desire, or interest in building the local Church in a leadership capacity. Through intentional classroom sessions, on-going discussions tailored to your personal ministry passion, and hands-on ministry training, you are sure to be well equipped to maximize your leadership potential in the local Church.
When does the program start and how long does it last? The program kicks off on Tuesday, February 6th and concludes with graduation in December. The main time commitments are Tuesday evenings and Sunday mornings. The year is broken up into a spring (February 6th-April 15) and fall (September 9th-November 18th) semester with one summer session/gathering.
What can I expect to learn if I'm accepted? DLA participants will see measurable growth in their ability to lead teams, maximize their personal giftings, and ultimately lead a ministry area. In addition, participants will experience exponential spiritual growth throughout the year. You'll build bonds that fill you, read books that challenge you, and take on responsibilities that test you. No matter your desired ministry growth goals, we'll help you get there.
What is expected of me if I participate? You are expected to attend a class consistently, participate in online and group discussions, complete assigned readings in a timely fashion, and put your leadership skills into action at church and at work. While the load of the program will not be overwhelming, we do realize that participation in the program is a marathon and not a sprint. We want you to start strong and finish strong.
Is there a cost to participate? Why? Yes. The cost is $200 and will cover a ministry conference, conference travel, and books and resources. We do not want cost to hinder you from pursuing your destiny. Scholarship options are available based on need and merit.
Is childcare provided? Yes, we will have childcare provided on location.
