This is a program that has been successful among churches of Christ for a long time. It is a convention that is held every year in the springtime. Young people from all over Florida assemble to display the skills that they have honed throughout the year with the help of adult sponsors. Puppets, public speaking and song leading are just a few of the many categories in which children can participate. The skills our young ones learn and the confidence that they gain, usually cements a lifetime of faithfulness. Moreover, the friendships that both participants and sponsors make reinforce their motivation and desire to remain faithful to our Father.
Lads to Leaders & Leaderettes is designed to foster students’ abilities in becoming effective leaders within the church. The importance of this type of training is invaluable to our youth today. It not only prepares them for leadership roles in the church, but it carries over into their family life, school practices, and later careers. The students are never asked to do any task that they are not properly prepared to accomplish. Lads to Leaders and Leaderettes is truly a life changing experience.
