Leadership Education and Development Training

Leadership Education and
Development Training

Love INC National offers training opportunities for Executive Directors, along with key staff or board members who may also be able to attend.

Leadership Education and Development Training (LEAD) is a two-part training opportunity. This year Executive Director Jolene attended both LEAD 1 and LEAD 2 and several of our board members were able to attend sessions as well.

The first section of LEAD is a two-day virtual opportunity to brush up on best practices and deepen understanding of why Love In the Name of Christ matters, how to do Love In the Name of Christ better in context, and what leadership can do to help the affiliate grow in excellence. The training is focused specifically on the following:

  • Redemptive Compassion®
  • Leadership Roles (Board & ED)
  • Church Relationships
  • Clearinghouse Ministry
  • Vision Casting

Lead 2 is a two-day in-person opportunity to brush up on best practices, to tour a healthy Love INC Affiliate, participate in a Transformational Ministry Program, tour a Gap Ministry and to connect with other new Executive Directors.


Executive Director Jolene Snow and Board Member Lila Young traveled to Millersburg, Ohio to attend LEAD 2 training.

This training was held at Love INC of Greater Holmes County. Representatives from 11 different affiliates in nine different states attended the training which covered topics such as the following:

  • Leadership Roles
  • Fundraising
  • Church Relationships
  • Clearinghouse & Gap Ministry
  • Intro to Transformational Ministry  (here in Hillsboro we call these the Restoring Hope classes)

Aside from the formal instruction, Jolene and Lila also toured Love INC of Greater Holmes County’s program – visiting their classes one evening and a couple of gap ministries the next afternoon.

Lila commented after they returned how much she appreciated getting to chat with the representatives from the other Love INCs. It is always valuable to hear how Love INC is working in other communities, how things are similar and different, and to exchange ideas and strategies with each other.

The training affirmed the priorities that God had already put on Jolene’s heart for 2023.
