Lads to Leaders
Please visit the Lads to Leaders website for more information about this amazing program.
Goodlettsville has been participating in Lads to Leaders since the Fall of 2013. It was brought to us by our Youth Minister, Cliff Hand, who had many years of experience with Lads to Leaders. We use the material and events offered from Lads to Leavers to supplement our classes and other student/church activities. We currently offer a L2L class on Sunday nights, during the school year, for all students age 5 through 12th grade. We use this class to allow our young people opportunities to learn how to use their talents, in various ways, to serve God. Our class is not for convention attendees only but for all students to learn more about serving God and gaining confidence in their faith for the future. Other L2L meetings and events take place outside of our Sunday night class also. For more information regarding our Lads to Leaders program at Goodlettsville, please talk to our L2L Deacon, Clay Borders.

This was our second year attending the convention it was fun, hectic, eventful, and many other things. It is always good to see so many christians in one place with a certain goal in mind. They were all there to encourage young people and to lift them up as they glorified God with their gifts and talents. To be in the midst of so many who are excited about young people bettering themselves to serve God is above description.
