Mentoring: Methods of Making Leadership Reproduction a Higher Priority

Instructors: Elizabeth M. "Liz" Bizordi and Rev. Dr. Sherry Kennedy

Cost: $30

Drawn from biblical as well as contemporary and classic Christian models, this workshop will introduce mentoring in a vital and motivating manner, making a case for intentional engagement in the local church. Workshop leaders will also provide practical tools, techniques and instructions for practicing these concepts in a "ready to take home, try, and share at your local church" manner.

Covering a wide array of leadership training materials, Liz Bisordi and Sherry Kennedy will present relevant highlights from John C. Maxwell's book, Developing the Leaders Around You; J. Oswald Sanders' classic work on Spiritual Leadership, chapter 20, "The Reproduction of Leaders"; articles from Building Church Leaders - "Mentoring that Matters" by Fred Smith and "Mentoring that Makes a Difference" by Earl Palmer. This will also re-visit workshop/training materials developed by Rev. Tony Freeman presented at 2001 UFMCC General Conference & World Jubilee, entitled "The Art of Mentoring & Coaching: Leaders Developing Leaders."
