Excellence in Leadership (EiL) is designed for rostered ministers and lay leaders, perhaps a ministry team of three of four. However, it can easily accommodate individuals who want to grow personally and spiritually.

As an individual participant, you will find a community of faithful leaders committed to walking with you as you lean into self-reflection, self-awareness, and self-differentiation. All the tools presented in Excellence in Leadership can be applied to individual growth as you strive to navigate relationships in your family, among your friends, at work, in your faith community, and in your civic communities.

As a ministry team participant, you will find opportunity to reflect on yourself as a leader in the context of your faith community. As part of your ministry team, you will move between doing your own internal work and engaging your team to explore the dynamics of your particular faith community.


How Do I Get Started?

Prior to registering, please review your calendar and the program schedule. To build healthy, effective, experiential learning communities, it is critical that participants make the gatherings of these communities a priority, be as fully present as possible, and engage in the learning activities. Your group will be led by a team of trainers who will be your primary contact and will work with you in the event of an absence.
