Leadership begins with listening.
Leadership is about a lot more than just having people follow. It’s about taking risks, going first and setting an example.
For any group of people to achieve anything of greatness, there must be those within it willing to lead. Leaders equip and empower others so that together they grow to understand faith as a verb and discover how they can utilize their gifts, talents and stories to proclaim the gospel and serve. Leaders help focus the group, create an environment for learning, ask questions, challenge the status quo, experiment, learn from mistakes and celebrate achievements with the group.
The Nebraska Synod offers learning opportunities for all ages and levels of expertise providing support for leaders with workshops, webinars, conversation groups, certification programs and theological education.
