Stuff to Read
The Synergist Book Preview
by Les McKeown
Chances are high that if you’re reading this right now, you are a leader. You have people who follow you. They may be paid staff or volunteers, old and young, seasoned or quite new on the job. As their leader, you probably are called to bring them together to accomplish something from a Sunday morning worship service to a messy game night for your junior high students. But when you look closely at the team that’s come together, you discover all sorts of personalities and work styles—people who “get it” and others who are still trying to figure it all out. How do you help everyone not only get along but also accomplish something great?
Stuff to Hear
Not All Those Who Wander Are Lost by Mark Matlock
Join the team from Youth Specialties at Orange! Here are the questions that will be addressed:
- Does youth ministry “work”?
- Numbers? Knowledge? Identity? Depth? Vision? Passion? Persistence? What are we measuring?
- What do we really know about who is exiting America’s churches and where they go when they leave?
- What do we know about those who stay engaged, and why they remain?
The Private Life of the Public Leader by Doug Fields
As a ministry leader your life is being watched—whether you want it to be or not, you’re a public figure! Beneath the skin of that public persona is a private world that must be healthy for the public ministry to thrive. There’s a constant tension between these two worlds because the teenagers, parents, church staff, and congregants have heavy expectations that often dismantle the inner world of a leader. In this workshop we’ll be talking about protecting, developing, and strengthening the inner world. Ministry is a marathon and leaders need to learn to pace themselves to survive and thrive.
