Founded in 1968, Lads to Leaders and Leaderettes is a training program aimed at developing today’s youth into Christian leaders. What began with eight young men in Georgia now has over 20,000 participants and is growing every year. Lads to Leaders is a tool to be used by churches of Christ. Each year there are conventions held over Easter weekend where participants can choose from different events where they can develop and show off their talents in service to God. Conventions are currently held in Nashville, TN; Memphis, TN; Dallas, TX; Louisville, KY; Atlanta, GA; Orlando, FL; Visalia, CA and the Philippines.
We attend the Memphis convention and are well represented by our youth in most of the categories. We encourage all youth and adults to participate and hone their individual skills. Many trophies and awards have been brought home since we began our participation in 2005 but we have brought home far more winners and stronger Christians more dedicated to serving God better than we have trophies.
