The Church needs capable, missional, Christlike leaders who seek to understand themselves, their flock, and their culture. So, how does our relationship with Christ inform and transform our leadership? This course explores the dynamic of leadership in the Kingdom and its relationship to the spiritual life of the minister in the context of Christian community. Conflicting expectations and often irreconcilable differences are unique challenges for the Christian leader in a local congregation, mission organization, Christian college, church governing board, or other community. What does it mean, then, to lead with the mind of Christ (1 Cor 2:16) in these situations?

This module will examine biblical and historically Christian models of servant leadership in light of Scripture, theological reflection and our current cultural context and seek to answer these questions for leaders seeking to serve, guide and shepherd with love, purpose and intention.

This retreat is for paid full or part-time youth pastors and will be August 11-13 at Golden Bell. We have had many youth pastors move in the past 2 years from our district. And thanks be to God, we have had several new youth pastors arrive to churches on our District. Every time we get together, we normally have students with us. So this would be a time to get away and really get to know each other; begin to understand each other; and begin the teamwork process.

EVENT Coordinator Meeting

I would possibly like to see the event coordinators stay around on Tuesday, and for us to do the detail work for our events for the next 1 to 2 years. So we can have it done; completed, worked on.
