A pandemic year’s worth of equipping…During a year like no other, the Center for Leadership Excellence has been striving to adapt and adjust to new opportunities by connecting church leaders with topical experts in virtual settings. In the past year, this is how we have resourced our conference:
Nearly 40 online events, including webinars, workshops, and
Days of Learning
Content about preaching in a pandemic, mental health, leading during liminal times, effective online worship, and more.
Almost 3,000 participants attending the 40 events
Connections made across states, across denominations, and literally across the globe.
We also continued:
The Leadership Fellows Program 2020-2021 cohort has continued to meet online and have felt similar connections and relationship with one another through a covenant learning community.
Encouragements is a monthly mailing written by women for women intended to give clergy a chance to reflect and take action on topics relevant specifically to them.
IMPACT is a rural church initiative where church teams connect with their communities through missional engagement.
This summer and fall…
The Colossian Way
An opportunity to get 40 churches talking about challenging issues through a guided curriculum and Holy conversation. (Funded by an Intentional Growth Center grant.)
This October, join us for conversations from pastors who preach through traumatic church occurrences, about anti-racism, and across politically divided congregations.
