Leadership Talks

November 8, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm MST

Sponsored by Clergy and Lay Leadership Development

Do you enjoy having opportunities to grow as a leader and to learn from other leaders? Do you find it enriching to share leadership ideas, concepts, and inspiration with others?

Opportunities are available to anyone in the Desert Southwest Conference interested in learning through a focused discussion of mixed media leadership resources, such as books, videos, podcasts, webinars, etc. Leadership is explored from various perspectives, including resources that look at leadership from more than one cultural lens.

A number of 1 1/2-hour, virtual evening conversations are offered this year.

This month’s event features “Anxious Church, Anxious People: How to Lead Change in an Age of Anxiety” on Monday, November 8 at 7:00 PM. The presentation will be recorded and posted to the conference website for viewing at your convenience.

Jack Shitama is the Executive Director of Pecometh Camp & Retreat Ministries where he has served since 2000. He is an ordained clergy with the United Methodist Church, and the founding Minister-in-Residence for the Pecometh Center for Clergy Excellence. He is the author of three books:

  • Anxious Church, Anxious People: How to Lead Change in an Age of Anxiety
  • One New Habit, One Big Goal: Change Your Life in 10 Weeks
