Leading Well

A Learning Retreat for Congregational Leaders

People are shaped for their ministries — in God’s church and in God's world — within communities of faith. This event is designed for those who serve in leadership roles in which they're called to be intentional about shaping others for ministry.

Participants will:

  • Practice what it means for you to live and lead well
  • Explore your gifts, strengths, and values and their implications for how you lead
  • Understand your ministry contexts
  • Refine your capacity to work effectively with staff and volunteers
  • Take time for worship, prayer, rest, and fellowship


  • Pastors who lead a ministry staff team
  • Pastors and other congregational staff members whose responsibilities include working with paid staff and volunteers
  • Congregational health ministers, youth ministers, education directors, music and worship directors, and others who work with paid staff and volunteers
  • Those who are newly called to lead a ministry team and those who are interested in sharpening their team leadership skills
