We are running another Growing Leaders Course at St Paul’s in 2016/2017. Growing Leaders is a Christian leadership course, providing some great teaching applicable across the life of the church as well as at work and elsewhere.
We particularly want to use this next course to help prepare more people in St Paul’s to take on leadership positions for our future plans – the plans that Tom outlined at the APCM. We are going to need many more people to take on various new roles in the months and years ahead, and this year’s course is open to anybody who would like/needs to do it.
The course will be run in the Garden Room at St Paul’s on Wednesday evenings, starting at 8:00pm each evening. The format includes a couple of day long sessions and a series of 2-hour teaching sessions once a month, with Mentor meetings in between those sessions. We are currently planning on:
|Session 1||16th-17th September 2016||Introduction: Leadership Matters|
|Session 2||12th October 2016||Establishing identity|
|Session 3||9th November 2016||Clarifying call|
|Session 4||14th December 2016||Developing character|
|Session 5||13th-14th January 2017||Discerning direction|
|Session 6||8th February 2017||Developing leaders|
|Session 7||15th March 2017||Leading together|
|Session 8||26th April 2017||Embracing cost|
|Session 9||10th May 2017||Staying fresh|
|Session 10||14th June 2017||Continuing well|
We would love to see you at the introductory evening – this does not commit you to attendance on the course but will allow you to hear more of what it is about and how it works; please let the office know if you would like to come along.
