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.

Latest L2L News:

Mack Lyon, 1921-2015

We are saddened to learn that Mack Lyon passed away. Mack was a great friend to L2L and helped mentor young people in many ways. He had a passion for media ministry, which began when he realized that people were increasingly watching religious television and that they needed to be fed the gospel via media. On the first Sunday of September in 1980, In Search Of The Lord’s Way began. Untold numbers of people have been led to the gospel by this kind, scripture-loving man! He retired from the program in 2010, but his love for this ministry never waned. Thank you, Mack, for all that you have done for the Lord and for the church. We will miss you!
