Since our foundation in 1968, the mission of Lads to Leaders/Leaderettes has been to develop youth into Christian leaders. From a group of eight boys in that first year to more than 20,000 today, our mission has remained the same.

L2L is the oldest and largest leadership training program used by the churches of Christ today. It is a tool churches of Christ can use to help prepare their youth and adults for service in the Kingdom of God and help develop their overall leadership potential. L2L is more than just attending a youth rally or participating in a Bible Bowl. We offer a variety of Bible-based class materials and events for preschoolers through adults.

Teaching students to do “Bible things in Bible ways” is the essence of L2L. 

The goal of L2L is to provide churches of Christ with effective, year-round leadership training tools that can be adapted to individual congregational needs. 

The purpose of L2L is to help local congregations instill the Word of God into youth and adults so that they will stand firm in the faith.  Teaching students to do “Bible things in Bible ways” is the essence of L2L.


Lads to Leaders/Leaderettes is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Your donation is tax deductible to the extent allowed by law.
