that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work.

2 Timothy 3:17

 

Description


 

Just as the disciples had to study under Jesus, so we who want to help others know God better must also study God’s words and ways.  

 

The Zion Christian Leadership School is an interdenominational school that offers classes for all who want to delve deeply into issues leaders face as they work to lead people to Christ.  The school opened under the direction of Mrs. Kathryn Dowdell during Rev. Leonard Thompson’s pastorate (1992-96).  Our current director is Mrs. Pennie Catron. Our registrar is Mrs. Corla Tillery.

 

The school is affiliated with the Evangelical Training Association whose mission is “Advancing high standards of church ministries.” There are three ten-week terms per year.  Enrollment is open to all who seek to learn–lay people & leaders, casual learners or certificate seekers–regardless of church affiliation. 

Give instruction to a wise man, and he will be yet wiser: teach a just man, and he will increase in learning..

Proverbs 9:9
