It is a difficult time to be a pastor in North America. The majority of congregations are plateaued or declining. Many pastors recognize that continuing to do what they always do as they have always done it will not significantly improve these dynamics. So what do we do? Leading change is hard!
Jim Singleton (Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary), along with Kevin Ford, Jim Osterhaus and Shane Roberson (TAG Consulting/Transforming Church), bring a combination of theological depth, proven field research, and practical know how to help equip pastors to lead change.
You are invited to be part of a three-year process of intensive training with thought leaders and a select group of fellow learners in a non-degree program offered through the Center for Development of Evangelical Leadership at Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary.
This program is offered in three parts, and this is Year One:
A Season of Re-Framing, is on developing capacity within the pastor to identify the deep nature of calling; to learn to face the inevitable conflict that arises when leading change; and to become a well-differentiated leader who is a non-anxious presence in an anxious system. After year one you will have a clear picture of your leadership role.
The program begins at Gordon-Conwell’s Charlotte campus this May and you are invited. For more details, and to register, please click here.
