The Ward Leadership Summit is just 24 hours away! There is still time to join me Friday night from 7-8:30 p.m. and Saturday morning from 9 a.m. – 1 p.m. The event is for Christian leaders and will feature videocast sessions by Bill Hybels, Alan Hirsch, and Francis Chan.
You may or may not think of yourself as a leader, but the truth is you lead something. You may lead a class, or a group, or a team. You may be part of a board, or a committee, or a task force. You may lead kids, or teens, or adults. You may be paid, or unpaid, or underpaid. You may lead in the church, in your business, or in your community. You may lead formally or informally.
Leadership matters. No matter what your sphere of influence, how you lead really matters to your group and to God. John Maxwell says, “Everything rises and falls on leadership.” Organizations and groups are only as effective as their leaders. That is why leadership development is so important. The Ward Leadership Summit is designed to inspire, develop, and stretch leaders. You will hear (via video) from some leading Christian thinkers and authors. You will be affirmed and challenged in your role as a leader in the church. You will have the opportunity to interact with other Ward leaders and with me about the group you lead and about Ward Church as a whole.
Didn’t get an invitation? Come as my guest. There is no cost for the event. Unfortunately, there will be no childcare available for those who are attending last-minute. I hope you will join me for this thought-provoking weekend!
