ReGrip--Canoeing The Mountains



“The world in front of you is nothing like the world behind you.”

The featured speaker at ReGrip this summer is Dr. Tod Bolsinger, author of Canoeing the Mountains:  Christian Leadership in Uncharted Territory. 
Dr. Tod Bolsinger’s understanding and application of adaptive leadership in the context of a local church draws from the experience of Lewis & Clark when it was discovered there was no Northwest Passage from the headwaters of the Missouri River to the Pacific Ocean.  What got them there (headwaters) would not get them to where they wanted to be (Pacific Ocean).  Likewise, the set of leadership skills required to lead local churches in uncharted territory requires a different kind of leadership than what have been used in the past.  Dr. Bolsinger is more than a theorist; he is a practitioner and teacher of those skills.
Regrip will be held at the Drury Inn, Wichita, KS on Thursday, July 25, 2019.  The registration fee of $40 will be waived for credentialed ministers in the Kansas District as well as those who are full-time ministry staff.  Online registration is now available.
ReGrip is designed to help enlarge the leadership capacity of pastors and others in full-time ministry equipping them with the practical skills and concepts required to lead well.
