Why Does LIFT Church Need Apprentices?
This vision of LIFT Church is to see fully realized churches established on university campuses across the country and thereby see our cities transformed. Fully realized churches require fully realized leaders. We need leaders that are equipped, trained and competent for ministry – both spiritually and practically. In order to see the vision realized we need leaders who are uniquely equipped to see churches realized on our campuses – uniquely trained for the demands, expectations and opportunities they present.
But make no mistake this is not about LIFT Church – it’s about seeing the Church established to see people know Jesus!
