Valiant School of Ministry – Leadership Class

Experience Valiant School of Ministry for Pastoral Leadership – A second semester of training designed for pastors and church-planters.

We help aspiring pastors and church-planters overcome their insecurities, break through their limitations, and become strong, confident leaders that establish churches of mature faith and fruitful growth! Our commitment is get as close as we can to preparing pastors like Jesus did, to shepherd the church of God like Jesus did. We purpose to use personal discipleship methods (one-on-one coaching and small group attention), not merely classroom instruction, to prepare leaders for pastoring. Students who will become pastors should be pastored themselves, as part of their training. We want to set examples for students as well as teach them.
