"The only way to keep a Methodist alive is to keep him moving."  John Wesley

You truly won't want to miss the 6th Annual CMU Leadership Institute as this promises to be a moving experience in more ways than one.  In fact, there are three good reasons for attending this outstanding leadership event for United Methodist clergy and laity from Missouri and elsewhere--Marianne Inman, Ron Watts and Mike Schreiner.

Marianne Inman, the 25th president of CMU, will share lessons of leadership she has learned from a lifetime of service to both higher education and the church.  Dr. Inman has led CMU to unprecedented growth and success as a UMC-related institution of higher education over the past 18 years, and her gems of knowledge and wisdom will be great take-aways from this shared learning experience.

Our leadership event will also focus on the experience of being stuck in our spiritual development, which impedes our movement forward and, if not corrected, can lead to stagnation and paralysis.

Stuck is a word that could apply to Christianity in the Western world.  It could apply to United Methodism in North America.  It could also apply to your church, your congregation, your leadership team, and even your personal spiritual journey.  We all know we need to make the move from maintenance to ministry, but how?

This year's CMU Leadership Institute offers more than an analysis of our condition of being stuck.  Instead, you'll hear some practical steps forward from two pastors who've been leading MOVEment in their congregations.  Join us for two powerful conversations around moving ourselves, our congregations, and our churches into the future God is preparing.
