What is it?

Leadership Training for Christ (LTC) is a training program that our congregation
uses to help students grow spiritually as they work on leadership and service skills,
Bible knowledge and other tools to help the church make and mature disciples. We do
this to not only train our future leaders, but also to help the growth of the church today!
We have practices during the Spring and some events at other times during the year.
Even though LTC’s mission is to always be in the process of training students, the big
highlight is the annual convention held during Easter weekend.

When is it?

This year’s LTC Convention is April 10-12.

Where is it?

There are many different LTC sites, and NTLTC
actually has 2 sites in the DFW area. Our church participates at the “Downtown
Reunion” site, which is at the Hyatt Regency in downtown Dallas.

How Do I Sign Up?

Registration occurs in the month of December. Our coordinators will be
at the youth desk on Sundays to collect registration forms, payments, and assist you
with any questions you have regarding LTC. Not only do you register your students for
their events (you can make changes for a month or so after the new year), but this is
also the best time to purchase the additional items (food, hotel rooms, etc.) for the
convention weekend for your student or your whole family.

Rules and information for each event are available online at ntltc.org, at the youth
desk with our coordinators, and also on one of the bulletin boards.

Use the following links to download and print the following forms and return them to the Youth Desk.

Event Practices

Starting in January, all of our events begin practices. We will have an
update each week in the bulletin, especially since some events practice every week,
some alternate, and some meet at irregular times. A few events have a coach that you
need to contact in order to set up a specific time. Look for the coaches list we publish.

What to Expect

The convention weekend is when our students display their training. They
encourage us when we see what they do, and they also receive feedback from judges
to help them improve for the future.


Events start at 3pm. Although there is a general schedule online you will want
to check-in first at our church’s table to get an update as students occasionally need to
move to a make-up time due to schedule conflicts. Our church table is in the lower level
of the hotel in the Marsalis Hall.


Events start at 8am and continue to 6:30pm. If you can, please stay all day
to encourage other students and families. We also eat dinner as a group that evening
for those who stay later.

Sunday AM

There will be a presentation time and worship at the hotel. The morning
presentations and worship will include several students who have been asked back to
participate. Some may have shown exceptional skills, and others may have been asked
to represent their congregation to get a variety of people involved.

Sunday PM

Our students lead evening worship back home at Waterview. After
evening worship we will close with our awards banquet.
