“We have some significant leadership challenges” is what I hear from many of the Parishes, Dioceses, Metropolises and Archdioceses with which I have worked.
While much has been written about leadership in “business world,” not as much has been offered in “church world” from an Orthodox Christian perspective. This New Year’s Eve, Ancient Faith Radio will air a special, prerecorded Stewardship Calling 5th Sunday program focused on the Five Critical Dimensions of Orthodox Christian Servant Leaders.
This Stewardship Calling 5 Dimensions Leadership Model was created after 11 years of working with hundreds of churches, completing strategic plans that cover 17%+ of Orthodox Christians in the U.S., and after integrating Holy Scripture and many best practices leadership research studies and books.
This December 31st program will specifically unpack each of 5 critical dimensions of the most effective Orthodox Christian servant leaders and explore how to improve leadership, mentoring and succession in your parish and life.
While you might not actually tune in at 8:00 p.m. Eastern on New Year’s Eve, you can download the archived version, find a supporting leadership PowerPoint and a 2-hour leadership training video at the always free www.stewardshipcalling.com under the Leadership tab (http://stewardshipcalling.com/leadership/) or the Internet Radio tab (http://stewardshipcalling.com/internet-radio/).
