Lead Well is our by-invitation-only gathering of elders, leaders, & spouses of the churches who have partnered with e2.  Because we had to postpone our first national conference (“The Huddle”), this fall retreat is designed to be a smaller scale gathering that will encourage and equip us to  lead well where it is that the Spirit has called us.  Like last fall, we urge church leaders and their spouses to join us to be further encouraged in their important ministry roles.
