If you are a clergy person in the role of pastor, staff pastor, chaplain, commissioned minister, educator, or ministerial candidates with a passion to lead well, this event is for you.

This workshop is the first component of a multi-year leadership program funded by a grant and designed to:
(a) train and provide support for full and part time clergy/ordained, commissioned and ministerial candidates to increase their leadership capacity; and (b) increase their personal/spiritual health and vibrancy. This learning opportunity will provide a renewed leadership capacity to engage and explore communities of faith in new and life giving ministry that provides hope to communities and shares the good news of Jesus Christ.

The program includes:

  • Leadership assessments
  • Action reflection model of learning.
  • Addressing real situations in participant’s ministerial settings.
  • Theological reflection from a perspective of practical theology.
  • Peer support and mentoring of one another.
  • Developing a shared commitment to reframe leadership practices in congregational ministry.

Keynote Speaker--Dr. Frank A. Thomas

Frank A. Thomas, PhD, currently serves as the Nettie Sweeney and Hugh Th. Miller Professor of Homiletics and Director of the Academy of Preaching and Celebration at Christian Theological Seminary, Indianapolis, Indiana. An updated version of They Like to Never Quit Praisin’ God: The Role of Celebration In Preaching was released in August 2013, and it is considered by many to   be a homiletic classic.

Thomas holds a PhD in Communications (Rhetoric) from the University of Memphis, a Doctor of Divinity from Christian Theological Seminary, Doctor of Ministry degrees from Chicago Theological Seminary and United Theological Seminary, a Master of Divinity from Chicago Theological Seminary, and a Master of Arts in African-Caribbean Studies from Northeastern Illinois University.

Thomas’ most recent book, “The Choice: Living Your Passion Inside Out”, published by Hope For Life International Press October 2013, explains and explores the spiritual and coaching process  to  live your passion from the inside out. Thomas is a nationally and internationally sought after keynote speaker and lecturer. Thomas and his wife have two adult children.
