How to courageously lead congregations toward unity and peace in the way of Jesus
February 2 & 16, March 22022

The pandemic has exposed how ill-equipped church leaders feel in navigating division. We must now gain new and more effective skills to lead within the increasing polarity of our times. As Christian leaders, we’re called and equipped by Jesus to join him in working for unity and peace in the cities and communities we love and lead.

Most church leaders have not been trained in the past to lead the post-COVID church of the future.”

Jesus Collective and Global Leadership Network Canada are partnering to host a live-streamed, three-part experience that includes training, case studies, and exercises to empower you and your leadership teams to courageously lead your congregation toward deeper discipleship in Jesus’ way of peace.
