Servant Leadership & The Great Emergence: The Spirit’s Call to Evolve, April 12--14, 2012
"If we disbelieve the dominant societal system, and if we transfer our trust from its covert curriculum and framing story to the good news of Jesus, a radical and transforming hope begins to happen to us."
Brian McLaren in Everything Must Change
How might we, as people of faith, tap into our collective wisdom and respond to the challenges of our times? How do we develop our spiritual capacity to meet these challenges in a more conscious, intentional and spiritual manner? Our times call for a new kind of leadership. How is this leadership embodied in communities of faith?

When & Where
The Servant Leadership School of Greensboro
The events take place on a block-long campus between Holy Trinity Episcopal Church and First Presbyterian Church
A core belief of our school is that every church in the world, by nature, is called to prepare servant leaders to follow Jesus Christ and serve God’s dream for a transformed world. The Servant Leadership School of Greensboro, now in our twenty-second year, invites participants to a deeper relationship with God and with others in community, as we explore both an inward journey of personal transformation and an outward journey of sacred service. Our hope is to nurture a generation of Christian leadership which brings renewal to our churches, creates life-giving alternatives in the workplace and home, and calls forth creative new ministries to serve our local community, and helps to shape our future in accordance with God’s dream.
