We’re really looking forward to the “Leaders Who Last” seminar taking place in Toronto on September 30-October 1. I’d like to encourage you to register yourself right away, and to let your leaders know about this seminar too.
Why This Seminar is Important
Dave Kraft is in his 70s. He’s been in Christian ministry for over forty years. He’s coached over 500 leaders. He now spends his life coaching younger leaders, even while living with cancer.
Mark Driscoll writes of a a difficult time in his life:
I was basically burned out in every way…My adrenal glands were fatigued. I could not sleep. I was seriously discouraged, exhausted, and frustrated. At that time God brought into my life a handful of ministry and business leaders who were older, wiser, and humble enough to serve me. Pastor Dave Kraft was one of those men. As a professional ministry coach, he brought me through a formal coaching process and helped me get my life and ministry in better order. He gave me permission to make some difficult decisions for the well-being of my family and our church. He wanted me to be one of the leaders who last…
Now I am glad to see a friend who served me well publish this book because we both want you to be one of the leaders who last. Sadly, too few Christian leaders finish well, and a combination of grace and wisdom cannot be overrated. You will find both in this book.
Kraft is coming to Toronto to share the lessons of his book with us. You can benefit a lot from reading his book, but some things can only be communicated in person.
The odds of you finishing well are low. That’s just a fact. This seminar is important because it will help you identify what has to change in your life and leadership if you are going to beat the odds and make it to the end.
Why You Should Register Now
We have 100 books of Dave Kraft’s book Leaders Who Last
ready to be distributed to those who register. The best way to prepare for this seminar is to take the time to thoughtfully read over the book. It’s the sort of book you may want to read more than once.
I highly encourage you to register today so we can get a free copy of the book to you, so that you have the time to benefit from the book before the seminar takes place. (Registering now helps us do a better job of planning the event too.)
The seminar takes place Friday, September 30 in the evening, and Saturday, October 1 in the morning, at Richview Baptist in West Toronto. We also have an informal discussion with Kraft planned for Saturday afternoon for those who wish to attend. The cost is $40 for the first person from each church, $20 for each additional person from that same church.
Here’s what you can do.
- Register today.
- Send this information to your key leaders so they can attend too.
Let me know if you have any questions. Looking forward to seeing you in September!
