Goals (Harvest the Power)

This program will:

  • Affirm the spiritual and emotional gifts as well as the skills that each person brings to a leadership position
  • Encourage congregations and participants to view holding a leadership position as an opportunity to enrich and deepen the leader's faith
  • Provide tools for leaders to work with congregations in times of change
  • Lead participants to develop an understanding of the importance of personal spiritual practice and integrity to healthy leadership
  • Explore reflection and deep listening as important practices of healthy leadership
  • Draw distinctions between management and leadership and invite participants to be intentional in creating space for leadership questions
  • Introduce system theory and provide some practice with system theory to explore congregational issues
  • Invite participants to look at conflict as an indicator in the congregational system and to respond accordingly
  • Provide opportunities to create narratives and metaphors that express participants' understanding of the practice of adaptive leadership
  • Deepen and enrich the experience of our congregational leaders, and by extension, the ability of our congregations to live out their missions and values, both in congregational life and in the wider world.
