“When it comes to leadership, no church can afford to hang a sign on its front door announcing NO HELP WANTED!” Those were the words of Dr. Howard Hendricks, former professor at Dallas Theological Seminary. What is true of the church is true of any ministry organization. Leadership is not optional, but essential. It's never a luxury, but always a necessity.

Today, churches and ministry organizations are desperate for the right kind of leaders—leaders of character, leaders of integrity, leaders who can be trusted, leaders who will serve, encourage, motivate, and value those who follow. In other words, servant leaders.

On Jan. 23, Waxahachie Bible Church and First United Methodist Church of Waxahachie are sponsoring A Servant Leadership Workshop for Ministry Leaders. Any church or ministry leader is welcome to attend along with their leadership teams (pastoral staff, elders, deacons, session members, ministry leaders, etc.) Dr. Fred Campbell, former pastor of Grace Church of Ovilla and president of Living Grace Ministries, will provide some key insights into servant leadership.

The workshop will take place at the First United Methodist Church of Waxahachie, 505 W. Marvin, Waxahachie from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.. The only costs are an individual or group donation (any amount) to Living Grace Ministries and the purchase of a workshop manual for $10. If you desire lunch at the facility, it will be provided by Bread of Life Kitchen Ministry for a donation.
