Earlier this week I was part of a team from Resurrection West that started the Leadership and Faith: Transforming Communities program from the Kansas Leadership Center. Here is a summary from the website:
“This unique program is designed for United Methodist congregations in Kansas and is a collaborative effort of the Kansas Health Foundation, United Methodist Church and Kansas Leadership Center.
The objectives of this initiative are:
- Contribute to the revitalization of the United Methodist Church in Kansas
- Enhance commitment to community health
- Develop leadership capacity of church participants
Selected congregations have the opportunity to study leadership competencies and principles that prepare them for active leadership roles in the health of their communities. Congregation teams will participate in seven days of formal training over a seven-month period of time.”
It was a fantastic experience for me and I am looking forward to applying principles and practicing leadership competencies in my role at Resurrection West. I also hope to explore more of the work of the Kansas Leadership Center. I commend them to you.
