DBA offers leadership development workshops and conferences in a variety of interest and skill areas. In addition, our association has strategic partnerships with other leadership development providers, such as Willow Creek Summit and Leading from Your Strengths, so that DBA pastors and staff may receive ministry discounts. The events are usually offered free of charge.
Church purpose assessments are another free resource offered to our churches. The follow up to church purpose assessments are fee-based consultations in the areas of outreach, space utilization, and Bible teaching enhancements.
