Ministry Today – Serving and empowering church leaders

The current issue of Ministry Today for September-October with Dr. Mark Rutland, president of Oral Roberts University, as the guest editor, is now available. I want to remind you about our partnership with Dr. Rutland on the National Institute of Christian Leadership (NICL). The next session will be held Nov. 7-9 at Strang Center in Lake Mary, Fla., the headquarters of Ministry Today.

Click on the image or here to watch a video of Dr. Rutland talking about how you can participate in the NICL.

Dr. Rutland, who has more than 30 years of business and ministry experience, offers leadership training that will positively impact your congregation and community. You can also plan to attend the four sessions of NICL in 2012: Feb. 6-8 (Leadership Management); March 26-28 (Staff & Volunteers: Building, Directing & Leading for Quality); Sept. 10-12 (Preaching & Worship: Excellence in Expression); and Nov. 12-14 (Turning the Ship: Strategic Leadership for Growth).

"This is not just a two-day event," Dr. Rutland said. "It's a life-expanding and leadership-expanding process spaced over the span of a year to transform you and encourage you to get back into the flow of higher education."

Several universities recognize Dr. Rutland's leadership training. By completing the four-session course, you can earn college credit towards your degree.
