OCC Leadership College is a developmental pathway designed to equip, inspire and reproduce servant leaders. During this nine-month program, you will grow personally, professionally and spiritually. You will develop a deeper understanding of who you are in the leader, while gaining an understanding of church leadership. Throughout the program, you will be challenged to seek the Lord in refining your growth and understanding of your spiritual gifts and how you can use them for the glory of God. This is not a theological seminary, but a foundational course in biblical principles and OCC’s values, that will equip the future leaders of One Community Church.
