Leadership Enhancement & Development
The defining statement for the District value CONNECTION states: “We will build courageous, life-giving relationships”. This value relates to the mission of calling forth PAOC leaders to create a Spirit-led, courageous, healthy church movement. One of the resources the ABNWT is using for building the leadership life of District Pastors and Ministers is the Leadership Enhancement and Development Seminars, often referred to as LEAD. Annually, there are a variety of seminars that focus on specific leaders and specific areas of leadership. They will be held in several locations to allow for maximum attendance or via live stream.

SESSION 1: Developing Policies in the Local Church – Rev. Dallas Bidell
The Local Church Constitution says “[a] local church shall have the right to develop policies and procedures which guide its operation as determined by the [leadership] or the congregation.” What is the benefit of creating polices in a local church? What kinds of policies should be created? How does a church go about creating and developing policy in the local church? Why do we need to ensure that policies guard our religious freedoms? Is there a need to have a “Ministry Covenant/Guidelines” for those involved in Church Ministry?
Dallas is the Lead Pastor of Family Worship Centre in Whitecourt, Alberta.

SESSION 3: Reaching Today’s Teenager. – Rev. Ken McIntyre
Youth Ministry in the local church hasn’t changed in philosophy or method in the last two decades. The challenge is that youth culture has drastically changed. There is currently an expansive gap in how many local churches go about ministering to teenagers. This teaching will help you understand the change that’s happened (and is happening) and give you some new perspective on how to reach today’s teenager. Ken is the Alberta NWT District Youth Director.
