E-lert - May 2012

Sign up now for June mini-MBA program!

Luther Seminary is collaborating with Augsburg College to offer a week-long residential program in leadership and management fundamentals just for pastors and church leaders.

Workshops are designed to equip you for the demands of today's pastor. In addition to preaching and teaching, pastors are expected to oversee complex budgeting processes, manage personnel, maintain facilities, form strategic and long-range plans for growth and development, and promote the church through traditional markets and social networks.

By the end of this week, you will develop critical management skills and nurture significant professional relationships with other pastors and church leaders.

The first workshop will be held June 24 at Augsburg College. Faculty and staff from Augsburg College and Luther Seminary will lead this case-based, interactive course to provide opportunities for practicing new skills that will increase your capacity and confidence to lead your congregation in the 21st century.
