One of the most rewarding, yet challenging, tasks for many churches is that of enlisting and training effective lay leaders. In today’s churches, where so much of the work is being done by so few, developing quality leaders from within the local church is a critical task. It is imperative that Ministers of Education, Small Groups Pastors, staff and lay persons responsible for Sunday School or Small Groups Ministry make it a priority to develop effective leaders.

Led by Ron Pratt, UP’s Church Training division provides training and workshops to churches around the country to help them develop leaders for ministry in critical areas such as Christian Education, Church Placement, Small Groups, Discipleship, and more. This unique approach to strengthening churches and developing leaders creates a structure that puts the right people in the right place to be most effective in helping the church fulfill her Great Commission.

Unlimited Partnerships’ Church Training Division offers a variety of training, conferences and workshops that support several facets of church growth. Led by popular church training consultant, Ron Pratt, churches benefit from being train by one of the best in the nation.
