Who We Are
The Character of Leaders

Tuesday, January 14, 2003
8:30 am - 11:00 am Pacific
John Ortberg
George Barna Dr. Henry Cloud

Leaders have influence because of what they do; they change lives because of who they are. Leaders must be called by God and must possess the competencies to make things happen. But without godly character, God is not likely to use an otherwise qualified leader. In an age where folks are fascinated by the tools and techniques of leadership, the single most important aspect of a leader's impact is character.

Describing new research on the character of Christian leaders, George Barna will explore the most challenging areas of character development in the life of the typical leader. Dr. Henry Cloud will provide an integrated model of the character of the effective leader, gleaned from 20 years of coaching leaders in ministry and business. John Ortberg will explore the issues that can compromise character, and the steps leaders can take to guard against "the seduction of the leader."

Who should attend this seminar:

  • Senior Pastors
  • Associate Pastors
  • Elders
  • Lay leaders
  • Anyone in a position of leadership in the church!
