There's still time to attend the next session, which will be held Nov. 7-9 at Strang Center in Lake Mary, Fla., the headquarters of Ministry Today.
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).
