Church Leadership Academy

Shawnee Alliance Church is dedicated to developing future pastors and church leaders.  We believe that experiencing ministry first hand in a healthy church environment is vital to the ministry preparation process.  The Church Leadership Academy focuses on creating intentional experiences through directed internships.  Interns will experience the joys and frustrations of ministry alongside experienced pastors who have launched many into ministry.
