A Three-Part Learning Community from:

Tempered Resilience:

A Guided Deep Dive For Leaders Facing Resistance


"I am sure I can learn to lead change,

I am not sure I can survive it."  

For church leaders that have ever thought or sensed this within their own leadership practice while navigating change, this learning community is designed for you.

Tod Bolsinger, Executive Director of the Church Leadership Institute at Fuller Seminary's De Pree Center, and the author of Tempered Resilience: How Leaders are Formed in the

Crucible of Change will be leading a three-week deep dive into the core practices for forming resilience in the face of external challenges and internal resistance that holds us back: reflection and relationships, a rule of life for forming resilience, and a rhythm of leading and not leading.  

Utilizing personal work through the book and study guide, combined weekly discussion, reflection on personal case studies, and real-time coaching, participants will be able to immediately begin forming the tempered resilience needed to successfully adapt to and thrive in the midst of change.  

Dates: April 14, 21 and 28

Time: 2-3:30 PM ET
