I’m thrilled to partner with my publisher, Zondervan, and Missio Alliance to offer a free webinar this Thursday, October 20, 2016 from 2:00-3:00 pm EST!
While many churches are looking for opportunities to engage women and men in leadership, they often run into a big roadblock: the women and men in their congregations have not received the same opportunities to develop their leadership skills.
In this webinar, you’ll discover practical steps churches can take to remove the roadblocks and empower BOTH women and men to lead.
You will learn:
- How mentoring as intentional discipleship become a leadership training laboratory for your congregation or leadership team
- Six commitments of successful mentoring
- How mentoring relationships can help us with the cultural, racial, ethical, and gender divisions in our nation, and indeed in the body of Christ
- Steps you and your church can take to raise up leaders and prioritize discipleship

You will receive a free chapter of “Mentor for Life,” and a leadership training manual and videos to prepare you and your team to lead well.
