Leadership

The Pres House Council provides a year-long opportunity for members to grow in their leadership skills through serving the Pres House Church community. UW-Madison students also have the option of earning the Leadership Certificate through the Center for Leadership and Involvement at UW-Madison if they choose. Council members focus on leadership development in these three ways:

  1. Love God
  2. Love neighbor
  3. Serve others

Pres House Council invites you to go deeper with God, neighbor, and service. Through the regular sharing of our lives with one another—our passions, our questions, our joys, our wounds, our challenges—we inspire our community to bear witness to the radical grace of Christ not only at Pres House, but in all the spaces of our lives. Applications for the 2021-2022 Council will be available in January 2021.
