Planter Leadership Development Group
Planter Leadership Development Group… a PLD group for planters! Led by David Masland, Director of New Faith Communities
What is it? Six monthly meetings, starting in November and ending in May. We will gather from 9:30 AM till 2 PM on weekdays (dates to be negotiated, during the first one, by the group). We will be reading and discussing four important books about: the spiritual life of the leader, developing a disciple making system in your NFC, and being an effective adaptive leader in our changing mission field. Each monthly meeting will provide time for going deeper spiritually, talking about our wildly important goals, celebrating the victories and supporting one another thru the challenges of leading a New Faith Community, discussing the book of the month, setting goals around action steps, praying together and holding one another accountable to the goals we set.
First meeting will be on Tuesday, November 27th at 9:30 AM in the Conference Center. There is no cost for this group. Just your time and energy!
Books we will be reading and discussing: “Canoeing the Mountains” by Tod Bolsinger (about adaptive leadership); “Strengthening the Soul of Your Leadership” by Ruth Haley Barton; “Developing an Intentional Discipleship System” by Junius Dotson, and one other of the group’s choosing (we will discuss some options when we gather for our first meeting.
Bottom line: This is a peer learning group! There will be no lectures by experts! It will be us learning and growing together as we continue to try to figure out how to make disciples of Jesus Christ in our unique new faith communities, in our unique mission fields!
