LDN is inspired by Paul's teaching "to equip God's people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up... and become mature," and by the story of Apollos, who "was a great help to those who by grace had believed" after being mentored by Priscilla and Aquilla.
Eph 4:12-13 and Acts 18:27
With a Synodically approved mandate to provide leadership training to churches in the CRC, and in partnership with classis BCNW and BCSE, the BC Leadership Develoment Network (LDN) exists to offer:
Reformed theological training for the whole people of God, equipping disciples of Jesus Christ conversationally around the text of Scripture and the text of their lives.
We accomplish this through the 3-year LDN training program, the 1-day classis-wide Let’s Talk About events, tailored training for local churches, and website resources.

1-day Training Events
These are 1-day Biblical foundations events open to all in the CRC, but especially useful to those already in leadership or ministry roles in their churches, elders and deacons in particular.
Each event follows a conversational format focusing on a particular passage of scripture and a related topic. These events are designed to be participatory and require some preparation.
