we went through four modules, over a period of eighteen months:
- spiritual direction, emphasizing the priority of a vital, growing relationship with Jesus
- vision and leadership, with an in-depth study of nehemiah
- lifelong leadership development, a seminary course that helps a leader to see the seeds of destiny in his past, and to anticipate what might be coming next
- working in teams, highlighting the inevitability and value of conflict and the importance of visionary team leadership.
during the final session (this past week), i found myself profoundly grateful to be a part of an organization that treats people well — as valuable resources to be developed and stewarded, rather than used up.
