Wesley Professor to Keynote October 19 Salt & Light Leadership Training Day
Rev. Dr. F. Douglas “Doug” Powe, author, professor at Wesley Seminary, will speak to the question “What are the leadership requirements for the 21st century?” The title of his keynote will be, “God’s Agents of Transformation.”
The Rev. Dr. F. Douglas Powe, Jr. is an ordained elder in the Baltimore/ Washington Annual Conference of The United Methodist Church. Rev. Powe is committed to helping urban congregations and congregations in transitional areas to flourish through community partnering. His research interest are church revitalization, urban theology and Methodist theology. Dr. Powe is the new Director of the Lewis Center for Church Leadership at Wesley Seminary.
The purpose of the Salt and Light Conference is to help develop congregational leaders by providing practical information, inspiration, and encouragement. In this way we hope to strengthen and enliven regional congregations, improve/retain our saltiness, and to let our light shine brightly (see Matthew 5:13-16). Every Disciple (leader or not) is invited to attend and will find it a day well spent.
Please join us. The Salt and Light Conference is a great opportunity for everyone to learn, share, and network within the Region.
