SCHOOL OF LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT

School of Leadership Development [SOLD] is a ministry of Dreamer’s Church, and in partnership with Portland Bible College.  We are committed to raising up, equipping and empowering dreamers to go after their God-given destiny.

School of Leadership Development [or as we call it SOLD] has a 1 year and 2 year option based on your goals, but due to COVID19, we have a special Spring "Ministry Preparation Certification" program this year! We're offering this unique one semester intensive program for those that want to develop their Scriptural knowledge, while serving the church and growing in their ministry experience.

This unique 2021 intensive SOLD program will be a great opportunity for college students, young adults and even married couples looking to develop a foundation that will prepare them for ministry in the future.

We have 4 primary serving collectives; Worship, Creative, Youth Ministry, and Kids Ministry. Each collective will give you the practical experience needed beyond the Bible College class room training to develop your gifting.

Note: We also have an Evening Class Option on Wednesday for those that want to just take additional classes to further their Bible education and leadership capacity. Please email matt@dreamers.church for more details on our evening class option.
