What We Do
Seminars and Workshops
Emerging Leaders Seminar
A one and
one-half day intensive overview of the entire spiritual leadership
process. In three, three-hour sessions leaders are exposed to the
fundamentals of Building Internal Credibility, Exercising
External Influence and Implementing Vision.
Attendance is by
recommendation through experienced spiritual leaders and is conducted in a
smaller group setting of up to 25 attendees.
In a day and a
half the Emerging Leaders Seminar (ELS) gives participants an intensive
overview of spiritual leadership. A highly interactive small group process
enables each participant to question, explore and incorporate the
discussion into their own unique frame of reference and personal spiritual
journey as a follower of Christ.
The ELS is like seeing a topographical map of the terrain of spiritual leadership.
Each participant is able to see how the entire process of spiritual
leadership fits together to make an integrated whole. Discussion is
divided into three divisions or pillars.
First Pillar The first
centers around personal spiritual transformation which, as a leader,
creates the internal credibility necessary before effective
leadership can even begin.
Second Pillar The second
pillar focuses on the integrated processes of leadership including the
topics of Culture, T2E-Transactional to Empowering, Direction/Focus,
Trust-Power Paradigm and Lensing. This creates the framework around which vision is crafted.
Third Pillar The third pillar
examines the practices of effective spiritual leaders and followers,
forming external credibility.

Transactional To Empowering -
one-half to one day
session where participants experience the potential of empowering teams
and the pitfalls of transactional relationships.
It is every
ministry leader's dream to have team members who:
their purpose for ministry is a personal calling
released to work in an environment where they are encouraged and
willing to seek new challenges
and accept decisions based on mutual trust
power as a catalyst for new opportunities
differences of opinions and methods as an exercise to find new and
better ways of doing things

language of empowerment.
experiences of participants the workshop will interactively explore what
empowering looks and feels like and how to move from transactional to
transformational and finally to empowering as a process style. The goal of
the workshop will be to take the language of empowerment and make it a
part of personal vocabulary.
puts language to the concept of empowering and creates evidence markers
when transactional, transformational and empowering process styles are appropriate. Participants will gain a clear view of
transactional behaviors and how transactional behaviors can be moved first
to transformational and finally to empowering. Ministry teams leave with a
follow-up exercise to help identify different styles back in the “real
world” where ministry takes place.

Assessing and Influencing
never been more true that if you’re not intentionally framing, forming
and influencing the organizational culture of your church/ministry, the
culture of your church/ministry, whatever it is and whatever it becomes,
The culture of
most churches is, by and large, a reflection of the culture of the
community it serves-internally or externally. Is that the way the Body of
Christ was intended to be? Or, should we as Christian leaders, be ahead of
our community culture helping to frame, form and influence it? Such an
effort begins with an intentional church/ministry culture that influences
the larger community culture where we live and who we serve.
interactive process, participants will first profile their current
church/ministry culture style. Then they will identify what the culture
profile would look like according to vision. The output product of the
seminar is to build a framework and design a roadmap for influencing your
church/ministry culture that will conform to the vision.
