The last week of September, all four Pastors plus Lyz Rhodes (Director of Children/Family Ministries at Trinity UMC) and Nicole Lucas (lay member at Faith UMC) attended the annual Leadership Institute at The United Methodist Church of the Resurrection in Leawood, Kansas. Leadership Institute is a national gathering of church leaders to attend more than 80 workshops in addition to several keynote speakers and of course Pastor Adam Hamilton, noted preacher and author.
Expect to see new ideas from our learning at Leadership Institute, including workshops on growth, welcoming visitors, effective staff teams, organizing volunteers, budgeting, technical video & lighting design, and much more. It is our hope that participating in continuing education in this way, we will be able to effectively lead these unique congregations and the UM4GI parish into a vibrant future filled with worship, learning, and service to our community. We welcome your voices as we continue to envision this vibrant future, and we invite your participation and leadership.
Thank you for your ongoing support so that your leaders can continue to learn, and can better offer leadership.
