The CMU Leadership Institute is an annual leadership event for clergy and laity held in May following commencement at CMU. 

This leadership day is an event designed to bring notable speakers to the CMU campus to share their expertise on relevant and practical aspects of church leadership. 

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.  His topic is: “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, Episcopal leader of the Missouri Conference of The United Methodist Church, will be present to bring greetings on behalf of the Missouri Conference, to introduce Bishop Willimon, to offer responses/questions to Bishop Willimon's presentations, to sign some of Bishop Schnase's own books that will be available that day for purchase by attendees, and to conclude the afternoon session.

The registration deadline is May 1, 2012.  Cost of registration is $15, which includes lunch and a copy of Bishop Willimon’s newest book, Bishop: Questioning Authority by an Authority in Question.
