Admit it. You’ve made a mistake in your ministry. It might be a small one. It might be a whopper.

How do you handle and learn from your mistakes? Can you gain perspective from your mistakes … and make the most of those negative experiences?

Join host George Barna, Gordon MacDonald, Matt Hannan, and Doug Murren as CCN helps you learn from Ministry Mistakes with this live, interactive satellite broadcast on Tuesday, October 7.

“Recently I did an article on the subject for Leadership Journal, and during the process of writing, I listed about 20 or more rebukes I have received over the years,” Gordon MacDonald says. “These rebukes have gone a long way toward shaping my life, my service to the Lord, and my view of relationships.”

Since you can’t avoid mistakes, it’s best that you’re able to learn from them.

“The pathway to discovery necessitates the process of finding who we are not,” Doug Murren adds. “Mistakes are part of the process to effectiveness.”

Make no mistake, your entire ministry team will benefit from learning how to handle Ministry Mistakes. Join CCN on October 7 for this live seminar via satellite!
