Autumn, 2015: “Leadership in the Church” Summit
This is an invitation-only event planned to take place in September 2015. It will consist of 3 full days devoted to exploring the theme of “Leadership in the Church” through a rich program of seminars, workshops and discussions that explore the subject matter from a biblical, theological and cultural perspective. The goal is to address leadership issues that arise specifically in Iranian (Afghan and Tajik) Church contexts.
Some of the specific questions that will be raised and discussed include the following:
- How to maintain an intimate relationship with the Lord when responsibilities are growing
- How to love biblically and lead others to spiritual maturity
- How to develop leadership skills i.e. plan strategically, communicate a vision, manage time, determine objectives, recruit and develop staff, and manage finances and resources
- How to critically evaluate popular leadership thinking from a biblical worldview
