Leadership: Shifting From Management to Mission:
The world is in constant change but our need for God is not.
Ministry in a changed, and constantly changing, mission field requires
learning new ways rather than getting better at old ways. Being efficient at
what we do is not the same as learning to be effective at what the mission
To make these distinctions requires us to
look again at the changed mission field and culture that surrounds us.
However, living in a shared global world that is increasingly complex and
diverse while also in a specific local world that is unique to the
individual church that it surrounds means that there are no "standard
answers" anymore.In such a setting leadership must start with learning
rather than doing. Our time together will explore some of the fundamentals
of the change that we are facing and will pay particular attention to
leadership of our congregations. Understanding the nature of systems, the
need for clear outcomes, and the leadership role of conversations as a tool of
discernment will be the primary focus of our learning.
Gil Rendle serves as Senior Consultant with
The Institute for Clergy and Congregational Excellence of The Texas Methodist
Foundation in Austin, Texas and as an independent consultant working with
issues of change and leadership in denominations and large churches.
