Leadership Development

Leadership Development

Leadership calls forth the gifts and capacities of many for the shared ministry and mission of the church. Parker Palmer says this about leadership: "Leadership is a concept we often resist... But if it is true that we are made for community, then leadership is everyone's vocation...when we live in the close-knit ecosystem we call community, everyone follows and everyone leads." 

It is said that the 'power for authentic leadership is found not in external arrangements but in the human heart'.  As leaders called to the ministry of forming and shaping disciples and discipleship, there are capacities we seek to deepen and gifts we seek to hone in ways that impact those communities we serve.

Here you will find a focus on leadership development and engaging leaders in many ways in your faith community.  These times of challenge and change call for adaptive leadership and innovative leaders for transformation. These development opportunities are offered or highlighted to assist leaders in all ways in the local church and community beyond.
