Organizational Leadership and Developing Church Leaders
September 9, 2019 | 7pm Central Time
Jesse Penna will return to teach our second class on Organizational Leadership and Developing Church Leaders, and he will bless us immensely as he enables us to discover ways to encourage and foster the development of new leaders in the church. He will speak within the overall context of healthy organizational leadership that prepares others to take their leadership responsibilities in the church. His class will be Monday, September 9, 2019 (the second Monday of September) at 7:00 p.m. central time. A challenge for the church in all ages, and indeed in our age, is to find and prepare leaders who will carry forth the work of Christ’s Kingdom in the future. Jesse will address this challenge as he speaks to us about his experiences in preparing others for church leadership.
Jesse Penna, a lifelong Evangelical Friend, knows well the Friends Church; its strengths, weaknesses, and needs. He has experience in giving leadership in the church and brings fresh ideas for developing and preparing future church leaders. His experience includes his ministry as Youth Minister at Northridge Friends Church, Director for Student Ministries in Evangelical Friends Church – Mid America Yearly Meeting, and Professor of Youth Ministries and Biblical Studies at Barclay College. His educational background at Friends University, where he earned the Master of Arts in Christian Ministries degree, has given him a solid foundation for his teaching and church leadership. Jesse will share with us innovative ideas and methods, many of which came from his ministries in nations in other parts of the world.
