Leadership Academy provides springboard for transformation

Leadership Academy 2015Pastors, do you wish you had a small group with whom you could bounce creative ideas?

Does your soul hunger for a week away from the office — to learn, be refreshed, to pray and find creativity?

Are you looking for an alternative to those church conferences where you sit in an auditorium with 500 other ministers who appear to have it all together?

Then, join us for Leadership Academy’s Transformation Cohort. For a week, you’ll have a chance to learn with other pastors who share similar experiences and be led by practitioners from across the life of the Church. You can even bring a leadership team from your congregation to experience the week with you (at a discounted rate!).

Be moved by powerful presenters like General Minister and President Sharon Watkins and former GMP Dick Hamm. Be motivated by cohort leader and Hope Partnership for Missional Transformation Vice President Rick Morse, who never ceases to find fun ways of teaching transformational leadership. Be lifted in worship and prayer. Be real in conversations about ministry and life.

“Transformation involves the whole congregation, but it starts with the pastor,” says Rev. Michael Fetty. “Leadership Academy gave me the tools I needed personally, as well as tools for my congregation to make way for the Spirit to work in the church.”

You’re invited to be a part of the upcoming Congregational Transformation community at Leadership Academy. The event begins in Indianapolis, IN on Monday, February 23, 2015 and concludes Friday, February 27, 2015. Be sure to act real soon! The deadline to register is Monday, January 26, 2015.

Leadership Academy is an interactive learning experience that brings together leaders from across the denomination to share leadership experience, wisdom, and trainings. The conference is a five-day event hosted Hope Partnership for Missional Transformation of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) since 2001.
