In order to provide you with the best quality leadership training, there is a cost involved. Also, when you need to pay for training, there is the psychological incentive for you to want to put in your best so that you can get the most value out of the training. Think of this training fee as a financial investment in your leadership development that will have valuable returns in the future.
The individual fee to participate in The Way:Leadership Development Cluster 1 is $450. Our recommended contributions for paying this fee is as follows:
WA Conference Subsidy: $100

You will need to negotiate the local church contribution with your church. The Leadership Development Department will support your application to your local church by confirming that you are participating in The Way:Leadership Development. If your local church is unable to contribute to the training fee, you will need to find other ways of paying this part of the training fee.
