Equipping Pastors to Lead Change Within Their Congregations
It is a difficult time to be a pastor in North America. The majority of congregation are plateaued or declining. Many pastors recognize that continuing to do what they always do as they have always done it will not significantly improve these dynamics. So what do we do? To reach lost people requires different approaches. But initiating different approaches requires leading change, and leading change is always hard.
Gordon-Conwell ministry professor, Jim Singleton, along with Kevin Ford, Jim Osterhaus and Shane Roberson of TAG Consulting, bring a combination of theological depth, proven field research, and practical know how to help equip pastors to lead change. To that end we would like to invite you to be part of a three-year process of intensive training with thought leaders and a select group of fellow learners in a non-degree program offered through the Shoemaker Center for Church Renewal.
This program is offered in three parts:
- • Year One: Reframing the Leadership of the Pastor (August 21-23, 2017)
- • Year Two: Refocusing the Leadership Core (August 20-22, 2018)
- • Year Three: Re-Engaging the Congregations (August 19-21, 2019)
Participants who successfully complete all three years will qualify for a year's advanced standing in the Doctor of Ministry degree at Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary in the Transforming Congregations or Leadership in a Changing Church Context mentored by Dr. Jim Singleton; or the Pastoral Theology and Practice track.
