Pastoral leaders – don’t miss the opportunity to attend the November workshop “Exploring Your Ministry Style,” sponsored by the California-Nevada Annual Conference Office of Congregational Development. Sign up now, while registration remains open.
The one-and-a-half-day workshop (it begins at 9 a.m. on the first day and ends at noon on day two) is being offered at two locations, at different times in the same week:
- Great Northern, Los Rios, and Central Valley Districts – Nov. 13 & 14, 2018: Conference Center in West Sacramento
- El Camino Real and Bay Districts – Nov. 15 & 16, 2018: Burlingame UMC
Each location was chosen with the convenience of attendees in mind, but you may attend either – not just the one designed for your district. Content will be the same at both.
Knowing your leadership style is the key to discovering how to work with others in an effective way. The workshop will offer time to reflect on your ministry style as a servant leader in your local setting, and will help to hone and improve your leadership in a variety of settings, along with your self-awareness in team settings where innovation and collaboration are critical.
You will need to complete a DISC* profile before attending, to better identify your strengths and blind spots.
Jim Griffith, the Founder of the Griffith Coaching Network, will lead the workshop. A church planter of six different congregations, Griffith brings a depth of knowledge to the work of starting new things – not necessarily churches – to reach new people. “Exploring Your Ministry Style” is NOT just for those seeking to start new faith communities! It will help every pastoral leader deepen their own skills.
All five District Superintendents will be present to share in this time of growth and development.
Griffith consults with dozens of annual conferences, boards of ordained ministry, and appointive cabinets, and has trained and assessed more than 1,000 church planters across a host of denominations. He has been working within the California-Nevada Annual Conference over the course of the last year.
Registration is $25. *The DISC assessment that participants will need to take in advance has a cost of $26. Details will be provided in a confirmation email after you register.
Registration for this event closes on Nov. 6.
