Leading in a Rapidly Changing World


How do we minister – how do we lead a ministry – in such a rapidly changing world?
Tod Bolsinger, M.Div., Ph.D. is the Vice-President, Chief of Leadership Formation, and Assistant Professor of Practical Theology at Fuller Theological Seminary.  He is a speaker and author of three books including Canoeing the Mountains: Christian Leadership in Uncharted Territory.
“Seminary didn’t prepare me for this,” is the statement that Tod frequently hears from his students.  Fuller Seminary echoed this lament in a 2010 survey suggesting that even those with extensive education and preparation may need help when navigating the uncharted waters of unexpected missional challenges.
Come watch Tod speak, take questions, and engage a conversation during this interactive streaming event at Myers Park United Methodist Church in Charlotte.
