Assisting our pastors and church leaders develop their leadership skills is a priority for our association. The Equipping a Better You (EBYou) Team is made up of pastors from EBA churches. They work diligently to provide Leadership Development opportunities.
Each leader has their own style of leading. We want them to draw from the variety of experiences and styles of fellow pastors and church leaders. Click on the EBYou button to see videos from our Leadership Series.
