Chick-fil-A Leadercast . . . & Leadercast Prize Package!

Leadership is essential for children's ministry. We all can point to examples of leaders who led well . . . and likely some who did not. If you are in children's ministry you are a leader whether you lead adults or children or both; so what kind of leader are you? 

As you read this you probably know what Chick-fil-A is, but you may be wondering what a Chick-fil-A Leadercast is . . . well . . . it "is a one-day leadership event broadcast LIVE from Atlanta, GA to hundreds of locations around the world on May 10, 2013. Strengthen your leadership by simplifying your life. SIMPLY LEAD." They say, "We are busy - and this may, unknowing, be holding us back. What if there was potential impact in simplifying our lives so our leadership could thrive? Leading in a complex world requires simplicity to cut through the clutter. Saying NO to what may seem good could help increase your capacity to live your life to the fullest. Join us at Chick-fil-A Leadercast as we learn to Simply Lead."
