A powerful way to have direct impact on the lives of many deserving young leaders and their churches is to sponsor an Ascending Lights Leadership Training Seminar. These focused seminars teach participants valuable skills that can immediately be put to use in youth groups or other social service outreach ministries. Many of our students report that their ministries, and even their work places, have greatly benefited from the materials and training they have received at our seminars.
Seminars employ a small group exercise format. This enables the participants to thoroughly experience and practice the skills being taught. Materials are provided that can be duplicated in other venues. The college level curriculum is prepared and presented by a team of qualified individuals with extensive experience in the fields of urban ministry and/or the behavioral sciences.
Seminars take place on Saturdays at retreat centers, universities or scenic locations in the Los Angeles area. Sessions begin at 9:00 A.M. with a continental breakfast and continue through lunch. They resume in the afternoon until 4:00 P.M.. Awards for academic excellence or outstanding achievement in ministry are presented at the conclusion of each seminar. Our goal is to provide a combination of spiritual development and practical training in how to start and lead a church social service ministry as well as to publicly recognize success in our program.
