Later this week I am going to Austin for a diocesan youth retreat. The retreat is called “Convergence,” and it’s supposed to be about fostering the development of young leaders in the church.
So they’ve asked me to give a workshop on leadership skills in the church. (My wandering mind goes to Napoleon Dynamite: “nunchuck skills, bow hunting skills, computer hacking skills.”)
And my workshop is the very last workshop in this multi-day retreat. I expect that the kids will be bushed by that time.
Here’s my question to you – and please respond in the comments section:
What are the most necessary skills for a church leader to possess/exhibit/practice?
