Leaders Who Last; Sustaining Yourself and Your Ministry was the theme of the Ministers Council retreat at San Damiano Retreat Center January 10-11, 2011.

MCGBA retreat

Our retreat leader Rev. Margaret Marcuson introduced the notion of "sustainable ministry," which trains and empowers ministers to focus on their inner resources for proactive leadership, instead of trying harder to help, fix or change others. She shared from her book, Leaders Who Last, which draws upon her own pastoral experience and leadership, plus a significant analysis of leadership in both families and churches over generations.
