EquippingU: Dynamic Influence

EquippingU Dynamic Influence is a two-year training track for pastors and leaders of Alliance churches with 200 or fewer people in attendance. Participants will meet online for four two-hour sessions each year. The training will cover timely topics including how small churches can grow during a pandemic. We are here to help pastors in small churches find resources, lead well, and help their churches thrive.
