Leading Change in a Rapidly Changing World with Tod Bolsinger

Tod Bolsinger_website banner

Why is my church dying?

What happens when preaching, programmes and pastoral care are not enough – because the culture has changed so dramatically?

What happens when you’ve been trained to be someone who will take a congregation down a great river and just point out the sights on the way, and all of a sudden you realise you’ve got to tell them they’ve got to drop the canoes, and now they’re an expeditionary force that needs to go over a mountain?

It requires pastoral leaders to have a different kind of leadership: how do you actually lead a group of people to change, to grow, to look into their neighbourhoods, to become something different than they even expected to be?…” Tod Bolsinger, Assistant Professor of Practical Theology, Fuller Seminary.

Join Tod on this 5 Day Block Course as he unpacks transformative leadership required to lead congregational change in a rapidly changing world.
