Congregational Leaders Conference

May 30-31st, 2018

Healthy Leaders, Healthy Congregations

Each year, The Presbyterian College welcomes congregational leaders from across Canada for one week on campus in Montreal. These leaders, participants in our Mentoring Program, enjoy time away from their normal ministry contexts and create a little sacred space for personal spiritual renewal.

In the context of this valuable week of pastoral renewal, The Presbyterian College is offering a two-day Congregational Leadership Conference to leaders from around Montreal. Our theme is Healthy Leaders, Healthy Congregations. We will be exploring together the crucible of leadership and exploring practices of healthy leaders and healthy congregations.

Most pastors have read books, taken classes, and attended conferences on the subject of self-care. Our desire is to create a space, not just to receive new information, but to work on many of the things we already know.

During our conference we will be learning from each other and spending focused time on: the biblical/theological foundations of the call to lead, leadership practices that help us in the crucible of leadership, and emotional and relational practices of healthy leaders.

Wednesday-Thursday May 30-31, 2018

9am – 5pm

Cost: $150, lunches included
