with Larry Kreider, Deryl Hurst, Connie Dienner, and Steve Prokopchak

Saturday, September 30, 2023
9:00 AM – 12:00 Noon EDT

At DOVE Westgate Church, Ephrata, PA
or Livestream

Author and leadership coach Larry Kreider teams up with other seasoned leaders from both the business and church worlds who have faced and passed a variety of leadership tests over many years.

There is a great need for leaders today who are willing to be examined by the tests of leadership so they will endure during difficult times. We don’t need more positions filled; we need leaders in all walks of life who will lead in humility and strength. This type of leader can only be developed by embracing, enduring, and passing the tests they will face.

Time will be given for you to ask questions of the presenters.

Seminar Focus

  • Learn what the many tests of leadership look like and how to prepare for them.
  • Receive practical biblical wisdom on how we can pass each test to become effective leaders.
  • Sharpen your leadership skills as God continues to prepare you for present and future leadership.
  • Learn practical insights for team-building, personal security, casting a vision, conflict resolution, transitions, handling criticism, unmet expectations, and more.
