Flourishing in Ministry: How to Care for the Flock without Losing your Soul (Seattle)

October 18 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am PDT
The Woodmark Hotel (Enter through Beach Cafe, go to 2nd floor), 1200 Carillon Point
Kirkland, WA 98033 United States

We will be gathering for a hearty breakfast and discussing how to flourish in our ministry.

Our discussion will encompass compelling questions about how we as pastors and church leaders can truly flourish in our own unique vocations. Perhaps it goes without saying, but if our aim is to help our congregations flourish in their vocations - it seems pretty important that we have some sense of how to do that ourselves.

This is a great opportunity to listen and share about our success and struggles with flourishing in our work as pastors and ministry leaders.

Canoeing the Mountains: Christian Leadership in Uncharted Territory

Presenter: Tod Bolsinger
November 1 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm CDT

One of the most difficult aspects of pastoral leadership is navigating change. This is especially true when the change leads us off the map of our experience into unknown territory. As pastors begin to embrace a theology of faith, work, and economic wisdom, it will require that we navigate change: from Sunday to Monday, from centralized power to the priesthood of all believers, from inward focus to outward mission. But how can churches navigate these changes into uncharted territory? Join…
