Our next Leadership Community Training for all volunteers is Monday, February 19. We look forward to another great training for leaders and volunteers this month, as we focus on the topic of spiritual warfare. These trainings happen three times a year and help our teams learn and engage with various topics relevant to our church and the work we do in our community. This training is required for everyone who is part of a ministry team at City Life.
