Leading effectively is not something that you wake up one morning and just know how to do intuitively, and yet, we are ALL called to lead!

“Leadership is Influence”

We are excited to come together in Tsawwassen and share the lessons that we have learned about what it takes to craft a mandate, set the perimeters and then bring it to life.

M3 - Mandate Margins and Making it Happen is about helping you become an effective leader who knows what to focus on and how to get there. We will take you on a journey through the Word of God that will fuse leadership principles and a biblical worldview into a cohesive understanding of what it takes to influence and impact our culture with the gospel.
