Local Lead Retreat 2020

Leadership Engagement and Discovery
MARCH 21-22

The Purpose of the Mid-Atlantic District Local-LEAD Retreat is to create a learning environment for developing self-aware leaders who can serve through leading others more effectively in their individual local ministry settings. We understand that leadership in ministry doesn’t work with a “one-size-fits-all” approach. We strive to invest in individual leaders and to enable them to discover their unique capacities to serve God with the talents, gifts and relational tools they naturally posses and can develop through acquiring new skills and knowledge. 


You do not need to be a member of Frederick First to participate. Anyone interesting in learning more about how they can serve in God's Kingdom is welcome to join.

The tools we use include:

GALLUP Strengths Finder assessment + Emotional Intelligence 2.0 assessment


To Equip & Enable ministry leaders and volunteers to become more fruitful and effective in working together to accomplish the good work God is calling them to do.


Vary depending on the number of participants who need to take either/or both the Strengths Finder and Emotional Intelligence assessment(s).

Strengths Finder code: $20.00 per person

Strengths Codes can be acquired from the Mid-Atlantic District Staff. If you prefer to purchase either the Living Your Strengths or StrengthsFinder 2.0 books which contains codes then you can do so through Amazon.com

Emotional Intelligence: $11.00-20.00 per person depending on the current cost of the Emotional Intelligence 2.0 book with which the code for the assessment is included. These can also be acquired through Amazon.com
