LolliPOP Leadership Development Seminar
“Let’s just make sure we’re all on the same page…”
I’d love a buck and a half for every time I’ve either said this to a team I was working with or someone else used the phrase to bring together a group of people all working toward the same purpose.
Several weeks ago I was chatting with some staff mates about all of the teams we have engaged in leadership at Prince of Peace. We made a list of all of the serving teams that come together, lead together, pray together, worship together and serve together. The list of leaders got quite long: ushers, greeters, communion servers, pizza servers, welcome desk volunteers, first aid crews, blood pressure screeners, bus drivers, grounds keepers and gardeners, small group leaders, family ministry leaders, Mission Outpost workers — just to name a few.
I began to wonder “What if all of us came together for just a short time, talked about what it means to be a leader in God’s church, then broke off into smaller groups to explore opportunities and revisit job descriptions? What would that be like—to all get on the same page about why we do what we do here as leaders at Prince of Peace? What would it be like to go into the fall with a rousing, uplifting, exciting, encouraging “Let’s-all-get-on-the-same-page” party?
Well, that’s exactly what we’re going to do! And we’re inviting you to come along. Join us on Sunday, September 7, 2014 in the Sanctuary for a Leadership Launch. We’ll get some training, be moved and motivated and be on our way!
The LolliPOP Leadership Development Seminar is for all volunteers – and anyone interested in becoming a volunteer – to celebrate, be inspired, get informed and most importantly to connect with other volunteers. It’s where you can explore new volunteer opportunities, talk to Ministry Leaders about their areas, and get excited for the new ministry year.
The event will include:
- Volunteer Expo – A chance to connect to all the service opportunities that POP has to offer. Find a new way to serve the community or ask questions of Ministry Leaders.
- Leadership Seminar – An inspirational presentation led by Pastor Jeff and Ministry Leaders. Learn about everyday leaders and the impact you make in the life of our community.
- Break-Out Sessions – Mini-training sessions for Mission Outpost, Spiritual Care/Lay Ministry mini-seminars, Courtesy Team (ushers/greeters/etc.).
Please join us Sunday, September 7 at 12:30 a.m. The whole event will take less than two hours. Child care is available. Please register today.
