Single Video

The pandemic has confronted pastors but it has also formed us. How have we cultivated personal resilience in our leadership and how has that impacted our communities?

In this webcast, we shared new data from Barna on resilient leadership anchored in Hope––not as a feeling to keep alive but as a person who secured our future and empowers us to build toward His future Kingdom. In Christ, we can navigate disorientation and lead from resilient hope.

Join Barna, World Vision, Danielle Strickland and others as we dig into the current state of pastoral health and explore how we can lead into the future of the Church and God’s Kingdom with Hope.
