Academia Vida Nueva is a program designed to provide training for the lay leadership in the congregation. Its program includes courses of study developed to give biblical knowledge. Their first 10-week course was “Getting to Know the Scriptures”; the second course was “Learning How to Study the Scriptures.”
The leadership academy develops and challenges the Vida Nueva congregation through study, discussion, and special projects. The leaders produced by this academy will continue to develop and grow other groups within the congregation. More than 35 persons have completed the two courses, and one group even grew from six to 12 participants during the recent sessions! After meeting every Wednesday for the past nine weeks, students presented their final projects after much studying and preparation. They will receive certificates and recognition in celebration of their accomplishments.
