servant leadership.


Leadership can be challenging.  FCHM co-op leaders have the full support and listening ear of other leaders who have not only had years of experience leading homeschool co-ops, but who are committed to reaching out to homeschooling families in the groups wtih God's love and care. 

 I Corinthinans 9:19 says,  'For though I be free from all men, yet have I made myself servant unto all, that I might gain the more."

 supportFCHM is passionate about equipping and encouraging co-op leaders as they serve the families in their co-ops.  In the spring of 2008, FCHM began a book study with the leaders based on Denny Gunderson's book "Servant Leadership".  It's just one more way we're challenging these wonderful leaders to lean on the Lord as they face the challenges and joys associated with their calling.

 The Staff at First Class Homeschool Ministries is here to pray with you, offer ideas, and give support and encouragement!
