“Strengthening the Soul of Your Leadership”

September 16, 2018 - September 18, 2018

Strengthening the Soul of Your Leadership with Ruth Haley Barton

SORRY! THIS EVENT HAS BEEN POSTPONED TFN (Originally scheduled for September 16-18, 2018   Green Lake Conference and Retreat Center)

Ruth Haley Barton is an award-winning and sought after teacher and conference speaker!

“I’m tired of helping others enjoy God.  I just want to enjoy God for myself.” With this painful admission, Ruth Haley Barton invites us to an honest exploration of what happens when spiritual leaders lose track of their souls.

Jesus indicates that it is possible to gain the whole world but lose your own soul.  If he were speaking to us as ministry leaders today, he might point out that it is possible to gain the whole world of ministry success and lose your own soul.  So how do you know if it’s happening to you?

In the Strengthening the Soul of Your Leadership retreat, you will assess the state of your own soul and explore practical ways of forging a stronger connection between your soul and your leadership.

Topics include:

  • solitude as the place of our own spiritual seeking
  • responding to the dynamics of calling
  • spiritual rhythms in the life of the leader
  • leading from your authentic self
  • facing the loneliness of leadership
  • cultivating spiritual community
  • discerning God’s will together and more!
