Clergy Leadership Group

The Samaritan Center of Southern Wisconsin, announces a Pastor Leadership Seminar for all area clergy. The Seminar's goal is to improve leadership skills for today's ministry. Clergy present case studies of challenging situations in their churches, which require their leadership. Participants then receive peer feedback for fresh perspectives. Some readings, specifically focused on pastoral leadership will be discussed.
A Family Systems Theory Model will also be utilized. The agenda for the group includes case leadership presentation and book discussion along with other topics determined by the participants.

The leadership seminar will be led by Dr. Dan Feaster, executive director and pastoral counselor of the Samaritan Counseling Center. Sessions will be held on Wednesdays once a month, from 11 AM -2 PM (working lunch) April through November for a total of eight sessions.

Check out our events for the dates.

Fee for the leadership group is $300.

  • How do I deal with difficult members?
