David had a great education at Dallas Seminary but went to “the school of hard knocks” for tactical and strategic church issues. For over ten years, people would ask him, “David, will you please teach us how to lead and manage our churches?” Read why David began the courses.

Let the Students Speak!
Wow. I never learned this in seminary or business school!
A great session today with Dan Reiland. It was very timely as we are planning to implement reviews in the next year. There were some great tips and insights shared today.
I need to miss today’s class on Staffing. Ironically that is due to a personnel team meeting to discuss the termination of our student pastor. I will be sure to watch the recorded session this week. Thank you for these great courses. I’m in my first XP position and am soaking up the knowledge like a sponge.
I wanted to say thank you again for the first level of classes. As I’ve mentioned to you before, it was God’s perfect timing for me to participate in this course—exactly the type of training and exposure to so many tremendous leaders that I need at this stage in my ministry.
Our students have lots more to share … read more
