History of Leadership Training for Christ

Leadership Training for Christ began in 1989 in Texas to offer a training program for youth that emphasized leadership skills, Bible knowledge, and service. Rather than competing against each other, LTC has been designed so that children and teens can encourage each other. What began as one convention in Texas has grown to a dozen convention sites across the nation. More than 12,000 young men and women from across the country now meet on Easter weekend to celebrate their accomplishments from a year of Leadership Training for Christ.

Leadership Training for Christ (LTC) offers your congregation a great opportunity to develop future leaders. Our goal in SELTC is to challenge third through twelfth graders to (1) grow in their knowledge of God’s Word, (2) discover and develop leadership skills, (3) develop a servant attitude, and (4) learn to work as a team.

LTC Events are listed in the following categories:

  • Pre-Convention Events – Pre-convention events explore talents from writing to Bible teaching. These events involve using various talents and to work on projects such as a children’s book or radio commercial.
  • Challenge Events – Challenge events are designed to encourage a lifestyle of study, service, and leadership. Throughout the year, students are encouraged to spend time in God’s Word (Daily Devotional Challenge), serve others (Service Challenge), and teach others (Leadership Challenge, Teaching Challenge, Bulletin Board Challenge and Worship Leadership Challenge).
  • Display Events – Bulletin boards, Christian Art, and Scrapbook allow students the opportunity to discover and develop artistic talents.
  • Convention Events – Bible Bowl challenges students to spend time in God’s Word throughout the year. Drama and Chorus help students develop specific talents while working together as a team. These events are highlighted at the annual convention, held each Easter weekend in Mobile, Alabama.

It cannot be emphasized enough – LTC is not about preparing for a convention. It is about helping our students grow in their relationship with God and each other. We pray that students will seize the opportunity, through LTC, to become strong leaders in their youth group, congregation, family, and community.
