2016 Christian Leadership Forum


Join over 200 passionate, faithful leaders at FTE’s 2016 Christian Leadership Forum! Come exchange ideas, address challenges within your ministry, and explore how you might ignite young leaders in your midst to boldly lead differently through the church.

If you are a pastor, chaplain, campus minister, leader of a denomination or faith-based non-profit organization, or a Christian leader working with young adults who desire to explore leadership within Christian communities, this opportunity is for you. Leave connected with a diverse community of peers and inspired by innovative solutions to issues the church and our communities face.

Register today and join a cohort of church leaders who are ready to lead differently!

This registration is only for leaders currently serving in some form of ministry and who are working with youth and young adults. Registration for young adults exploring ministry is currently closed.


Registration for this event is closed.
