Pioneering Leadership (United Church of Canada)

The webinar looks at 2 key issues:

1. What is a pioneering leader.

There are lots of suggestions of what leaders should be doing but little trying to analyze what pioneering leaders might look like. Presenter David Male will suggest there is not one simple answer to this question but some key issues to consider which impact the ministry of leaders greatly whatever their particular gifting. He will look at both biblical and practical material to help people approach this vital issue. He will particularly look at the ministry of Jesus to see what clues this might afford in his role as ‘pioneer and perfector of our faith.'(Hebrews 12:2)

2. What are the icebergs pioneering leaders face?

This section will examine the key issues that often trip up aspiring pioneers. David is very aware that pioneering leaders are often more susceptible to burn out and fall out so what are the issues that lurk under the surface but may easily cause a huge crash for unsuspecting leaders.
