Lunch with Dr. Mark Lau Branson - Hales Ales

Seattle Presbytery

Lunch with nationally recognized authority on congregations and church leadership, Dr. Mark Lau Branson (author of Memories, Hopes and Conversations: Appreciative Inquiry and Congregational Change and Churches, Cultures and Leadership: A Practical Theology of Congregations and Ethnicities) on Thursday, March 15th, 2012 at Hales Ales Brewery in Ballard.

Topic: "Leadership During Discontinuous Change"

Our churches, our members, and our neighbors live in a context of significant and at times unpredictable changes. As leaders, those of us who provide pastoral leadership often find that the skills we developed and the work we anticipated doing are not especially suited to this environment. How do we employ the skills we have and gain new competencies for adaptive challenges? How do we provide appropriate leadership as we give the work to the everyday people of God? We will discuss how Practical Theology, as a method, can be a mode of discernment for leaders and congregations. We will also look at frameworks of missional ecclesiology and adaptive leadership.

When:  Thursday, March 15th, starting at 12:30 - 2pm
Where:  Hales Ales  2nd floor meeting room - 4301 Leary Way Northwest  Seattle, WA 98107
