Artful Leadership


As pastors and leaders in the church, we’re most effective when we ourselves are continually growing spiritually while refining the skills needed to shepherd the communities that have been entrusted to us. Leadership development resources are abundant, but what if we look for wisdom in a different place? For centuries, art has had a particular way of awakening creativity, curiosity, and courage. All three of these are vital to a flourishing ministry, especially when considering the convergence of worship, preaching, and justice. Join Jennifer Ackerman as she introduces the power of art-based spiritual formation practices into your life and ministry.

This course will count towards the upcoming Brehm Center Certificate in Theology and the Arts.
