Description

Dear Northern Plains District Pastors & Church Leaders:

As chair of the District Board of Ministerial Standing, I’m inviting our pastors and church leaders to a pastoral training event on Tuesday October 9th at Salem EFC in Moorhead. The training will begin at 10:00am CST and end at 2:30pm CST. Because in addition to encouraging and helping our pastors become licensed in the EFCA, we also see our role as a board to provide training opportunities for our church leaders.

Last fall Bill Piatt, a biblical counselor and seminary professor, spoke on the fundamentals of biblical counseling and its application for the local church. We had sixty leaders from our district take part and the response was overwhelmingly positive to continuing to provide these training opportunities.

And in addition to the encouragement to continue this event, several survey responders from last year suggested leadership development as an area that they would find helpful as a future topic. Leadership development is not something that is easily taught in seminary and yet is one of the most important needs in the church. And this is not only true of multi-staff churches but also of us who are solo pastors. We need growing in leadership development ourselves and of helping our current leaders grow, as well as raising up the next generation of leaders in our churches.

So towards that end we have invited Fritz Dale, Director of Leadership Formation and Prayer Mobilization for the EFCA, to be our presenter and facilitator at this year’s pastoral training event. The title of this year’s workshop will be “Shepherding the Hearts – Yours and the Hearts of Your Leaders”. And here’s how our speaker, Fritz Dale, describes it: “Ministry has many demands and dimensions, but at the core, we need to be leaders who shepherd our heart and the hearts of our leaders. Our fall seminar will provide practical insights on guarding and growing your hearts. We also will focus on how you develop the hearts of your leaders so that they are life-giving, flourishing servants of Jesus.”

In addition, you may have noticed that we are extending the training this year by half an hour to be able to include a time after lunch for the District Superintendent search committee to be able gather input from the pastors and church leaders in our district to help them in the search process.

We will have refreshments in the morning and lunch is included. The cost is $30/person and is due Friday, September 28th (for food planning purposes). If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at 701-315-0331 or jeffhigbie@hotmail.com.

By God’s Grace, Jeff Higbie
