Clergy Leadership Group

The Samaritan Center of Southern Wisconsin, announces a Pastor Leadership Seminar for all area clergy. The Seminar’s goal is to improve leadership skills for today’s ministry. Clergy present case studies of challenging situations in their churches, which require their leadership. Participants then receive peer feedback for fresh perspectives. Some readings, specifically focused on pastoral leadership will be discussed.

A Family Systems Theory Model will also be utilized. The agenda for the group includes case leadership presentation and book discussion along with other topics determined by the participants.

The leadership seminar will be led by Dan Feaster, executive director, and pastoral counselor and ASSIST provider of the Samaritan Counseling Center. Sessions will be held on Tuesdays once a month, from 11 AM -2 PM (working lunch) for a total of eight sessions. Leadership group will start October 22. Fee for the leadership group is $300.

Some possible topics might include:

  • How do I deal with difficult members?
  • What are some effective ways of resolving conflict without being victimized?
  • How do I continue to pastor when I am running out of energy or becoming discouraged?
  • How can I better accept my limitations as a person?
  • How do I deal with my emotions when ministering in tragic situations?
  • How do I develop cooperative leadership strategies with my co-pastor?
