CL4 – Leadership Conversation with Bishop Clements

Session a

Yellow A1225

Bishop Jeffrey Clements

A critical part of the success of our congregations’ ministries comes through the work of the elected leadership, i.e., the Congregation Council. Bishop Clements will facilitate a conversation with congregational leaders about what it means to be an elected leader, and talk about some models for collaboration with the staff, especially the rostered minister. It will also be a time to talk with Bishop Clements and ask questions of him about his view of leadership in the congregation. If you wish to send a question or topic in advance, that you would like to see addressed, please submit them at nisynod.org/cre/question.
