The LEAD program offers concentrated one-day or two-day retreats that teach dynamic, practical leadership skills to junior or senior high school students and young adults. LEAD training can be tailored to the specific needs of a group.

Jerome Meeds, Director of LEAD programs, has more than 30 years’ experience in Christian youth ministry and life coaching.  He says, “We develop each student’s strengths and motivate them to become better leaders within the context of their Christian lives.”
