Why should a Senior Pastor come?
“My senior pastor should have been here with me. You may want to encourage seniors coming with their executives. This seminar was helpful. Time well spent!”
Interact with other Senior Pastors
Senior Pastors are visionary leaders, preaching to change lives. Here is an opportunity for you to sit around a table with others like you to talk about ministry.
- How do others handle the non-stop tension of ministry?
- How do you stay fresh with God?
- What is success in preaching? How do I measure it?
- How do others handle the joy and pain of staff and volunteers?
Be with other Senior Pastors who have been in the role for 10, 20 and 30 years.
Come with your XP
The ideal path is to come with your XP. Both of you will learn from the sessions and workshops. Then, in the evenings, compare and contrast what you’ve learned. This is a great time to enhance your SP/XP relationship.
A great place to build a team
Senior Pastors often bring their staff teams or members of their governing boards to the XP-Seminar. By talking about church leadership and management, teams learn how to handle the tough questions of ministry. After interacting with others who have “been down the road before,” your team will be more prepared for future successes or crises.
A great place to “Get a feel for the XP role”
Many Senior Pastors have come to learn more about the XP role. Some of the questions that they ask are:
- Should I have an XP?
- What would it really do for me?
- Is it worth the risk?
By interacting with other Senior Pastors—and by interacting with skilled XPs—you will better understand the role. Learn what type of XP is best for you and your church. Learn how to free up your schedule by utilizing an Executive Pastor!
