Leadership Reboot: May 29 & June 6 9:00 a.m. – Noon

Leadership Reboot continuing education course offered online May 29, June 6 through Bishop Kemper School for Ministry

The Rev. Casey Rohleder Two-minute read.   Resources

The Bishop Kemper School for Ministry is excited to announce the first continuing education course for Summer 2020, taught by the Rev. Roger Gustafson, bishop emeritus of the Central States Synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America.

Out of an abundance of caution for the health and well-being of students and the instructor, this course will be offered entirely online over Zoom. It is open to the first 12 registrants. The preferred registration deadline is May 9 so that students have adequate time to prepare for class. The tuition fee for Leadership Reboot is $100.

Registration is available at bishopkemperschool.org.

This seminar is ideal for all pastoral leaders, lay and ordained, who value a confidential and caring context in which to:

  • understand more clearly the distinction between technical and adaptive challenges and changes, – explore and make progress on a current or looming challenge or dilemma,
  • learn about their appropriate role in conflict, and
  • address how, in this time of dramatic change, we as leaders remain attentive to the voices of those around us while listening even more closely to God’s call to us.

Our experience will be our classroom. This class is designed as a safe, supportive environment, and, as is true in much of life, students will benefit to the degree that they invest themselves in the learning process. Where do you face a difficult challenge, where do you feel stuck and you want to make progress? Dealing with this dilemma will be at the heart of the seminar.

The Rev. Roger Gustafson is bishop emeritus of the Central States Synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America. Prior to serving as bishop, he was a co-pastor of Advent Lutheran Church, Olathe. He earned his Master of Divinity degree with honors from Pacific Lutheran Theological Seminary in Berkeley, California, and his Bachelor of Arts degree in journalism from the University of Minnesota. He has served as dean of the Kansas City-area ELCA churches, and chaired the Church Planters missions team in the Kansas City area. He recently received certification as an ELCA coach.

The Rev. Casey Rohleder currently serves as Director of Communication for the Bishop Kemper School for Ministry and Rector of St. Luke’s Episcopal Church in Wamego, Kansas.
