With the rapid pace of cultural and social change, “we’ve always done it this way before” is likely not as effective for you as it used to be. The new challenges you’re facing don’t fit the road maps you used to rely on. Even your education and past experience may have little to say about your current realities.
The challenges you’re facing can be overcome. You need a willingness to see these challenges as opportunities and a desire to grow in your capacity to lead adaptively. Join leadership expert Dr. Aleze Fulbright as she challenges you to let go of the past, keep the faith in challenging times and learn to gain the trust of others in order to move your congregation forward.
“If you’re going to scale the mountains of ministry, you need to leave behind canoes and find new navigational tools,” explains Tod Bolsinger in his book Canoeing the Mountains: Christian Leadership in Uncharted Territory. Gleaning from this book, Dr. Fulbright will guide you in leading your congregation through the process of transformation by helping you gain new strategies, build trust and strengthen commitment.
By the end of this live online workshop, you will be able to:
- identify some of the uncharted territories facing congregations today.
- apply adaptive strategies to leadership challenges.
- articulate the attributes of courageous leadership.
- utilize tools that foster personal and group transformation.
Rev. Dr. Aleze Fulbright is the conference superintendent for the east district of the United Methodist Churches of Indiana. She has a wealth of experience in leadership development, management, team-building and collaborating, which she uses to advance leaders around the state of Indiana.
