Christian schools and organizations around the world are seeking new leaders to step in to make an impact in their communities. The retirement of many leaders points to the need for more inexperienced leaders to step forward in the next generation. The Emerging Christian Leadership Conference was born out of a recognition of the need and a willingness to take action. Leadership is needed at all levels within schools, including teacher leadership, coordinator, and administrative roles, and extending to senior leadership roles. The need is clear and present. The Emerging Christian School Leadership Conference prepares future leaders to level up by equipping participants to fill needed roles most effectively.
Whether you are a classroom teacher that aspires to move into teacher leader roles such as a Department Chair, have aspirations to move into administrative roles such as coordinator or program director, or desire to be a senior level administrator or head of school in the future, the Emerging Christian Leadership Conference is designed to enhance your skillset and provide training needed for your next steps. While leaders of all ages and experiences are welcome, this event is a two-day focused training for leaders who want to level up their leadership and gain practical ways to increase their impact through greater leadership skill development. The focus is on school leaders, but the skills are transferable to leadership in other Christian organizations and communities. This conference will be a focused learning experience to engage participants intensely over a short window to impact daily practices and bigger-picture perspectives.
Dr. Jay Ferguson, Dr. Matt Thomas, and other experienced leaders will provide insight and practical applications of leadership practices. Breakout sessions will allow more discussion in smaller groups and provide choice for conference participants. The conference will start after lunch at 1 pm on Thursday and finish by 3:30 pm on Friday. Don’t miss out on this opportunity to impact your own leadership or share with someone from your school that you want to see develop their leadership.
