Whether you were once a member of GB or fancy giving it a go for the first time you can become a GB leader.

Many of our leaders come into the company as helpers and then progress to train as an Officer. It is a great way to make friends and get to know the young girls in your area. You will get back much more than you can ever imagine.

The important thing is that prospective leaders have a personal relationship with Christ and have a desire to serve God.

'...take them by the hand and lead them in the way of the Master' -
Ephesians 6:4 TM

Please note all leaders, including helpers, must go through Child Protection criminal background checks and Child Protection training. The church has the responsibility of choosing and appointing leaders. All GB leaders work under the authority of the church. GBNI provide leadership training and resources.
