Leadership IGR

Leaders: Revd Peter Doodes and Fiona Bower

A silent retreat for all in Christian Leadership roles: Although the fact is that all Christians, irrespective of gender or situation are leaders, those that the Church Congregation looks up to as a leader are in a vastly different situation and capacity and have a far greater responsibility. They must always be aware of the fact that their Christian Leadership is not some kind of glamorous career destination or personal reward for reaching the `top`. Christian Leadership is, for those in this situation, a resource that is to be shared and is only good leadership when the Church as an entity benefits from it. On this retreat, we will then follow and explore the ways of Jesus ultimate example of leadership, that of being a servant. Jesus example of servant leadership applies to all and to any in positions of leadership in God`s Church.
