Deep River Church of Christ continues to support training youth for service and leadership through the Lads to Leaders/Leaderettes program. Boys and girls from ages K-12 may choose from a variety of events in which to particpate, including oral bible reading, debate, song leading/songs of praise, speech, puppet theater, art, multimedia, Keepers, Providers, and Bible Bowl. Many Deep River youth, parents, and supporting adults travel to Atlanta, GA for the Lads to Leaders/Leaderettes annual convention.
There are abundant opportunities to help support our youth in the Lads to Leaders ministry, such as coaching students as they prepare for events, assisting with speeches, making props, udging events at the convention, or simply showing up to encourage and learn.
More about Lads to Leaders/Leaderettes (From lads2leaders.com):
"L2L is the oldest and largest leadership training program used by the churches of Christ today. It is a tool churches of Christ can use to help prepare their youth and adults for service in the Kingdom of God and help develop their overall leadership potential.
The goal of L2L is to provide churches of Christ with effective, year-round leadership training tools that can be adapted to individual congregational needs.
The purpose of L2L is to help local congregations instill the Word of God into youth and adults so that they will stand firm in the faith. Teaching students to do “Bible things in Bible ways” is the essence of L2L."
