Equipping Pastors to Lead Change Within Their Congregations

It is a difficult time to be a pastor in North America. The majority of congregations are plateaued or declining. Many pastors recognize that continuing to do what they always do as they have always done it will not significantly improve these dynamics. So what do we do? To reach lost people requires different approaches. But initiating different approaches requires leading change, and leading change is always hard. 

Jim Singleton (GCTS), along with Kevin Ford, Jim Osterhaus and Shane Roberson (TAG Consulting), bring a combination of theological depth, proven field research, and practical know how to help equip pastors to lead change. You are invited to be part of a three-year process of intensive training with thought leaders and a select group of fellow learners in a non-degree program offered through the Shoemaker Center for Church Renewal at Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary.

This program is offered in three parts:
The focus of Year One: A Season of Re-Framing, is on developing capacity within the pastor to identify the deep nature of calling; to learn to face the inevitable conflict that arises when leading change; and to become a well-differentiated leader who is a non-anxious presence in an anxious system. After Year One you should have a clear picture of your leadership role.

In Year Two: Refocusing the Leadership Core, we will turn to the question of how to lead your leaders. You will develop the process necessary to bring your leaders back into focus.

In Year Three: Re-Engaging the Congregations, our target will be on helping your leaders in re-engaging the congregation.

At each stage we will give you tools to assist you in understanding these levels of ministry. In between residencies you will have the opportunity to experiment with your leadership in reflective ways. You will be in a cohort with 25 people longing to learn and with whom you will find much in common.


Dates: Year One: Reframing the Pastor as Leader (August 21-23, 2017)
Year Two: Refocusing the Leadership Core (August 20-22, 2018)
Year Three: Re-Engaging the Congregations (August 19-21, 2019)


Cost: $695 per year (travel and housing not included) * Advanced standing for a future DMin. is possible!
