10 month Theology Course & development year

LEAD - 10 month Theology Course
Our LEAD Theology School will be held over 10 Saturdays throughout the year. Each session will be divided in two with one part focussed on exploring a section of the Bible and the other part focussed on an aspect of practical theology and how it applies to our discipleship and leadership.

The sessions will be taught by the pastors at WBC plus a number of guest teachers throughout the year specialising in different fields. Morning sessions will typically start at 9:30am and finish by 12:30pm with a break. See Course Schedule below.

LEAD - A leadership development year with WBC
Part of our vision as WBC is to raise up and release leaders who have a heart and a vision for the Kingdom of God. This leadership year is about the church investing in potential leaders who are hungry for God, who want to grow in Christ and be all they can be for Him.

We recognise leadership takes a wide variety of formats and we want to prepare people for the calling and context God has for them, whether that be in the workplace, overseas, in church etc. We want to invest in people to help them grow in character, competency and calling, equipping leaders to serve God in the next stage of their journey.
