Send Training

Our passion behind Send Training is to develop strong, Church leaders


Each session of Send Training is designed to help planters produce specific outcomes for their church plants. Send has identified 12 Leadership Competencies. The are borne out of the question, what outcome should a church planter be producing as he is learning church planting skills?
