Leader of Leaders
Leader of Leaders is unique training, offered only by JMM, for the purpose of equipping leaders in sharing Christ and mobilizing believers.
In an effort to take the gospel to the world, JMM seeks to train leaders who will train other leaders. Leaders apply and must be approved by their church, as well as associational or state convention staff. They must be able and available to train people at their churches and to mobilize others to be trained.

Churches and other denominational entities may choose to host Leader of Leaders training. Host churches provide the training venue, five host homes for two trainees each, and one lunch and dinner for attendees. In most cases, expenses for the JMM team are covered by the ministry. The host church may send 10 to be trained (at no additional cost). JMM invites up to 20 others to participate. Invited guests pay their own expenses and the typical cost varies depending upon location.
While training is available for as little as an hour minimum, in order to be certified as a Leader of Leaders, training must be a minimum of eight hours. The ideal for each track is 30 hours of training, 20 session blocks. To see a potential week-long schedule, for Called2Lead, click here. To see a potential schedule for Called2Go, click here.
Many are unable to participate in a week-long training so for both tracks, we offer a half-week option. All 20 session blocks of material are offered in a condensed schedule of three days or 15 hours. To see the 3 day training for Called2Lead, click here. For Called2Go, click here.
Intensive one-day training is reserved for the most advanced leaders who are familiar with teaching others and who can absorb and great amount of material in a short amount of time. These trainings may take the form of one weekday or weekend training. There is also options for overnights that feature partial one day trainiing, and the rest the next day.
