Excel Leadership Discovery Center

Rivers Crossing Community Church 5937 Kings Island Dr., Mason, OH

The Discovery Center is our assessment process and the whole focus is on helping leaders take their next best step in ministry. This is a two-and-a-half-day event.

If you are a ministry leader and you have been considering what your next step should be, the Discovery Center is a great place to discover that. You have an opportunity to connect with experienced leaders and professionals that genuinely care about you and want to help you make the best decision possible.

Blue Ocean

Blue Ocean is a one-year introduction to what it means to join God on mission, to be formed into a follower with the character of Christ, and to learn to reach friends and neighbors with a robust Gospel in our culture.

We meet three times a year in three different cities across the United States and Canada for multi-day retreats. Blue Ocean includes pastors, leaders, and regional ministers from across the NAB. Each cohort represents a cross-section of regions, church sizes, and ministry styles. The discussions are both encouraging and challenging.
