Pohly Center Expands Opportunities for Leadership Training
DAYTON, OHIO, Feb. 7, 2017 — Practical leadership formation training events are coming this spring for clergy and laity seeking to improve their leadership for ministry.
The Pohly Center for Supervision and Leadership Formation at United Theological Seminary in Dayton, Ohio, is expanding its courses offerings for continuing education or self-improvement. The Center is dedicated to the formation and development of Christian leaders through practical training events, workshops and retreats as well as consultation with churches and institutions.
Beginning in February and continuing through July, opportunities include the Pohly Center’s signature “Building Leaders” courses in the area of supervision. Rev. Dr. Kenneth Pohly, founder of the Center, said, “I understand pastoral supervision to be a way of doing ministry in which two or more people covenant together to reflect critically on their ministry as a way of growing in self-awareness, ministering competence, theological understanding and Christian commitment.”
Additional opportunities focus on financial stewardship, clergy burnout and church health. View all current offerings on United’s website at www.united.edu/pohly-events.
United Theological Seminary is a graduate professional school of The United Methodist Church offering masters’ and doctoral theological degrees and continuing education with programs offered on campus and online. United’s goal is to educate dynamic, Spirit-led leaders who will renew the church for the mission of Jesus Christ in the world.
