Armor Bearer is a one to two-year intensive leadership training program aimed at helping college-aged students learn to follow God and serve the local church with their unique giftings.

Armor Bearer Applications open once a year and are available for all Revive Leadership, our college ministry leadership program. You can apply for a position in any of these ministry areas: Worship, University, Students, Children, NextGen, or Community Outreach.
