DISCIPLESHIP

What we do flows naturally out of who we are. Students are offered a wide range of discipleship and leadership classes taught by our staff, the staff of Together Church, and guest speakers. We believe that talent will only take you as far as your character sustains you. Character is forged through discipleship.

Lead Florida offer discipleship including a wide range of topics such as:

  • Scripture Studies

  • Ministry Skills

  • Character Development

  • Discipleship 101 (First Year Discipleship)

  • Leadership 101 (First Year Leadership)

  • TNT (Guy's Discipleship)

  • P31 (Girl's Discipleship)

INTERNSHIP

Lead Florida was created with the intent of getting hands-on experience. We want you to apply what you learn in the classroom to real life. In this area of your education you will be stretched and challenged to grow outside of your comfort zone and walk in the calling God has for you. You will have access to diverse areas of ministry and gain a mentor who will offer guidance and support while on your journey.

Some internship options might include (but aren't limited to):

  • Worship & Music

  • Pastoral Ministry

  • Youth Ministry

  • Children's Ministry

  • Graphic Design

  • Production & Media

  • Church Administration
