Leadership Development and Resources

Lunch & Learn for Leaders Series: 

Lunch & Learn for Leaders is a monthly series hosted by the Center for Transformational Leadership that is offered at no cost to participants through proportional giving. Every third Thursday, join us at noon for a 1-hour session of learning and discussion. Each month we will offer a bite-size opportunity to learn valuable concepts and practices from a subject expert. Our wide-ranging topics are relevant to areas of mission and ministry that you, our authorized ministers and lay leaders, have indicated are timely for your congregations.

- Learn about different leadership styles and identify your own
- Equip yourself with new skills for strengthening and serving your community
- Deepen your knowledge about the United Church of Christ
- Ideal for church moderators, council members, trustees, deacons, and others serving in formal leadership roles
