Leadership Training

This year, due  to the pandemic, we have adapted the annual leadership training to an online model. Even if you missed them live, we have added the recordings of the trainings to this page for your FREE access!  Each event was moderated by Rev. Scott Ferguson. Resource links for any materials mentioned during the training will be links with that video.
