About the Certificate

The ECLL enhances your learning experience in four unique ways:

1. Designed for busy lay leaders;

2. Interactions with skilled trainers who will help you apply your marketplace knowledge to your church setting using a biblical lens;

3. Guidance from Leader Mentors who themselves have substantial experience as senior lay leaders, and who are also skilled mentors;

4. Modular and practically-oriented assignments that help you apply your learning immediately to your church context.
