Facilitative Leadership Training and Executive Team Meeting

Rich Johnstone

Dr. Rich Johnstone, City Coordinator for San Francisco for the North American Mission Board

This Saturday we have a great opportunity to participate in some valuable training provided to us through the North American Mission Board.  Dr. Rich Johnstone, who serves as the City Coordinator for San Francisco, will be with us leading in a workshop titled Facilitative Training.    Over the past few weeks some people have asked me, “What is facilitative leadership?”

Facilitative leadership is enabling, empowering, and mobilizing the team around you to accomplish the mission of the team.  Facilitative leadership can also be described as formulating a vision and executing the mission of the team.   This topic is one that provides great value for anyone involved in church leadership.

The day of the dictator is now over.  A great leader must work through a group of people in cooperation to build trust and high morale.   This training has been of great value to many people who have taken the time to participate.   I pray that we will see many people in the SWBA be a part of the training this weekend.     See you on Saturday!!!!

  • 8:00 a.m. – Refreshments and Registration
