The Presbytery of North Central Iowa has worked in Partnership with the Presbytery of Prospect Hill, Minnesota Valley’s Presbytery, and the Synod of Lakes and Prairies to develop a brand new training program designed to train lay leaders for ministries in the church. The Academy is a series of 11 courses designed to develop well equipped, thoughtful people to better serve councils in a variety of capacities. For some this may lead to becoming commissioned ruling elders (CREs) while others delight in learning and growing as a leader. We lined up some of the finest instructors we can find!
