On May 18, 2012, Christian Schwarz, the founder and president of the Institute for Natural Church Development (NCD International), will be in the North Alabama Conference leading a workshop to introduce pastors, small group leaders, and NCD Coaches to the dynamic content of his two new books: The 3 Colors of Leadership and The 3 Colors of Community.
Natural Church Development Coordinator (NCD) for the North Alabama Conference Rev. Nancy Cole says, “You will not want to miss this opportunity to learn from Christian Schwarz himself. If you register before February 29, 2012, you will only pay $80 which includes the two books and lunch.”
During this one day workshop, Schwarz will introduce participants to fresh concepts about leading and empowering others in his book The 3 Colors of Leadership. Based on research among thousands of leaders worldwide, it portrays the twelve fundamental principles of leadership that everyone can learn. Registered participants will also be able to complete The Empowerment Test (a sophisticated, but easy to use test which helps leaders identify personal growth areas) and go over their results that day.
Schwarz will also use his book The 3 Colors of Community to introduce participants to the seven communal qualities of healthy groups. Through a creative teaching about the Seven Deadly Sins and understanding the energy behind them, participants will learn how to transform energies of frustration and defeat to experience God's best in their lives and small groups. Participants will also discover their personal energy level and contribution to community.
The event will be held at Gardendale-Mt. Vernon UMC in Gardendale. The maximum number of participants is 125 people.
The registration cost is $80 if registered before February 29, 2012. The registration cost increases to $95 after that date. Registration includes the two books, assessments, breaks and lunch.
