Welcome to our Fall Training and Equipping Summit, 2018
Location: Red Rocks Fellowship, Littleton
In Session 1 we will give attention to our ability to plan (Proverbs 16:1-9). Good planning is a key component of good, responsible leadership; but do I simply assume that my plan is God’s plan? As for my life and my ministry, do I want what God wants for me more than what I want for myself? Do I make my plans with the desire that God’s plan will be accomplished?
In Session 2 we will explore what it takes to appropriate God’s perspective in the service we render and the leadership we provide (Proverbs 24:23-34). The passage will guide us through God’s perspective on justice, priorities, retribution, and work—not a one of which is not part of everyday life in the church, especially in the life of one providing leadership. Appropriating and living out God’s perspective in these four domains of life is critical to effective service and God-honoring leadership.
In Session 3 we will consider the challenge of being ever-mindful of God’s provision (Proverbs 30:1-9)—not only when things are going well, but when they are not. In the closing session, we will focus on the sufficiency of God’s Word and the adequacy of God’s provision for effective, godly leadership.
