Leading a Vibrant Faith Community II

Today’s leaders of faith-based institutions are expected to not only spiritually inspire and engage their congregations,they are also expected to effectively manage complex organizations and skillfully lead teams of staff and volunteers. Faith leaders are often confronted with the challenge of figuring out how to supplement their seminary/religious training with the skills needed for effective 21st-century organizational leadership.

This two-day residential executive education program will allow leaders of faith communities to network with each other as well as learn from leading experts in management. Participants will have the opportunity to have a rich classroom experience as well as small group applied learning sessions, which will enhance their time at Kellogg.

This program will be held at the James. L. Allen Center in Evanston, IL.

Upcoming Sessions

This program is designed as a non-denominational learning experience and is therefore open to senior and associate leaders of all faith communities. This is an ideal opportunity for teams of leaders from the same faith community to attend the program together.
