Embrace a Revolutionary New Paradigm
\nRecent studies confirm that we as pastors and leaders are confronting a crisis: people’s lives are not being profoundly transformed in our churches. Moreover, many of us in leadership are running on empty, neglecting our own inner life with God.
\nThis conference is designed for church leaders eager to lead differently, ready to integrate two missing components in today’s church – emotional health and contemplative spirituality. We will address this large spiritual formation problem by looking at the paradigm of emotionally healthy spirituality that has been developed at New Life Fellowship out of its 25-year history.
\nOur goal to equip each pastor/leader to begin the journey so that:
\n1. He/she serves out of deep interior life with Jesus, a cup that overflows. (Our work for Jesus is sustained by a life with Jesus).
\n2. He/she becomes an emotionally mature adult who can contribute to creating a healthy church culture.
\n3. He/she is equipped to have a growing, dynamic marriage and/or singleness that reflects our marriage to Christ.
\n4. He/she initiates specific changes for the transformation of the wider church culture. (Taking specific steps to create a healthy, spiritual formation focused culture. Examples of this include: integrating EH Skills for staff meetings and relationships, adding new staff and saying healthy "good byes", helping people craft a personal Rule of Life, looking at membership implications, programming, priorities, impact on strategic planning/staffing, and integrating a theology of work).
