It is true that rapid change is everywhere and dealing with change is hard. You spend a lot of energy handling the day-to-day work of your congregation. There’s often not much energy left to wrestle with the rapid shifts resulting from technology, culture, and generational mindsets.
But what if much of this difficulty comes from aiming at the wrong targets? Reorienting your focus, an admittedly difficult task, may be the solution to attaining deep and lasting change.
Join Dr. Jerald Duff in this luncheon workshop as he helps you begin to develop some necessary practices to lead well in the midst of changing circumstances.
Topics covered include:
- The necessity of a shared vision
- Building a transformational team of servant leaders
- Seeing conflict as an asset to be embraced
- Eight traps to avoid when attempting change
- Learning to be a healthy congregation no matter your size
Jerald Duff has a Ph. D. in leadership and philanthropy from Union Institute & University and completed post-graduate coursework in marriage and family therapy from Purdue University.
