Houston's First places great emphasis on Life Bible Studies — the primary way we "grow our souls." To support this vital ministry, we offer our Life Bible Study leaders monthly leadership meetings, Milestones classes, age division training, and individual training opportunities — but Midnight Madness is our premier leadership training for all age groups annually.
This is the one time we come together as leaders from all age groups and all leadership positions to sharpen our focus on the purpose and role of Life Bible Study and specifically focus on how each leader can serve in their role with excellence. Truly, we are “Better Together!”
Current and prospective Life Bible Study leaders from each Houston's First campus are welcome to gather for this annual equipping event for great training, inspiring vision, fantastic giveaways, interactive fun — and food, of course!
