developing leaders to carry the vision



What is it?

VIVE School of Leadership is a 10-week intensive taught by Pastor Adam Smallcombe, Senior Pastor of VIVE Church. It exists to equip our church with tools and teaching to develop leaders who carry the vision of VIVE Church, are committed to growth personally and corporately, and desire to see the kingdom of God reach our communities.

Upon completion of School of Leadership, you will not only receive a graduation certificate complete with a Sunday Graduation Ceremony & Commissioning Service, but you will also be eligible for a campus leadership role, as well as the opportunity to apply to the VIVE School of Ministry Pastoral Leadership Track.
