Leaders face many challenges in today’s world: burnout, tribalism, division, and the unrelenting pace of change
This practical and pastoral intensive program of six Saturday workshops builds a supportive community and develops leaders using a transformative, theologically-informed and psychologically-evidence-based framework. This program is now available for credit (via MST).
Who is this program for?
The THRIVE Leadership program is targeted at Christians who are already in an established leadership role as well as those who see themselves in a leadership position in the future.
Participants may be serving as a pastor, youth worker, chaplain, counsellor and cross-cultural worker. Or they might be a leader in the non-Christian sphere; in business, education, medicine, politics or social entrepreneurship. The diversity of participants in this program only enhances the learning.
The program consists of six Saturday workshops, which are designed to be undertaken in one year, and in chronological order. We pursue a cross-disciplinary approach, facilitating interactions that may not otherwise naturally occur within traditional vocational settings. The next THRIVE program will run in 2024.
Thrive Groups are crucial to the program. In these groups, participants share what they’ve learned and support one another as they seek to apply the work in their own context.
Thrive Groups meet with a Thrive Group Facilitator for an hour following each workshop to discuss how they’re applying the work, and to troubleshoot any challenges that have arisen. This reflexive learning process supports and enhances the whole program.
The workshops run from 9am to 3pm (including breaks) at MST/online.
