On January 13 & 14, Starlet will be leading the West District Leadership Academy #1 in College Station at the West District office. Reverend Wanda Bess, West District Superintendent, is extremely excited about incorporating this new contagious ministry movement “mindset” into the West District of the Texas Annual Conference. This academy originated from the New Pastor Orientation held in August 2014, were pastors expressed leadership needs of their local churches. Six churches will be taking part in this initiative. The goal of the first 2 days of the Academy will discuss intentional leadership, contagious ministry movement leadership, and building coaching cultures to empower God’s people. Day 3 & 4 will involve the staff and laity of the six churches and will encompass leadership styles, building high-performing teams, conflict resolution strategies, and create mission and vision within the churches.
