CMU Hosts Bishops at Leadership Day
Central Methodist University will host its fifth annual Leadership Institute on Tuesday, May 8. from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m.
Leadership Day is open to both clergy and laity from all denominations. This year's keynote speaker is Bishop Will Willimon of the North Alabama Conference of The United Methodist Church. Bishop Willimon is one of United Methodist's leading authors and most sought after speakers.
Willimon will present "The Greatest Challenges of Leadership in the Name of Jesus," focusing on the unique qualities of leadership in the church and elsewhere in the name of Jesus Christ.
Bishop Robert Schnase, resident Episcopal leader of the Missouri Conference of The United Methodist Church and one of the denominations' most prolific writers and catalysts for organizational change, will join Bishop Willimon. Schnase will respond to Willimon's presentation and lead a question and answer session with conference attendees.
Participation is expected to exceed 175 church leaders from across Missouri, including many pastors from mid-Missouri. Attendees will receive a copy of the newest book by Bishop Willimon entitled, "Bishop: The Art of Questioning Authority by an Authority in Question."
