Summer School for Leaders

The mission of Citylight Council Bluffs is to multiply disciples and churches!  We want to see our city and region changed by the gospel of Jesus in such a way that thousands are following Jesus and churches are planted.  Already, God has done more than we could have imagined, but we long for more.  And for disciples and churches to multiply, we need leaders!  That’s why we’re excited to share about Summer School for Leaders, launching this May 2017.

Imagine 20+ leaders gathering once each month with a desire to grow in their passion for Jesus and their skills in multiplying disciples of Jesus.  Imagine a room full of leaders who celebrate what they have learned, challenge one another to put into action what they have learned, and take action steps into leadership together.  Spanning 7 tracks of study, each with a strong emphasis on the Bible, Summer School for Leaders exists to identify, empower, and multiply future leaders, fathers, mothers, teachers, City Group leaders, preachers, worship leaders, church planters, and pace-setting disciples of Jesus.

What Does it Cost?

  • $65 per student, if you want us to buy your books.
  • $35 per student, if you want to buy your own books.

  • practice what you learn, whether that is in your City Group, a Serving Team, a different church, your family, or your work!
