Leadership Development

Our leadership gatherings are an important part of developing and maintaining healthy leaders at The Avenue. We gather Gospel Community Leaders, Staff, Ministry Leaders and our Pastor’s to encourage and sharpen each other during these gatherings. Sometimes there is strategic work to accomplish but the most important thing we do is get on our face in front of God and lift up this movement before God asking Him to move in our lives, our church, and the world around us.
The Avenue Ministry Residence: The Avenue also has an residency and internship program for prospective church planters, Pastors and/or people looking at following a calling in ministry. This is up to a 2 year program that is tailored to each individuals unique circumstances and calling. If you would like to know more about this program and how you can get involved please email to talk to one of our residency directors.
