The GNJ Clergy Seminar is designed to develop clergy in their growth as fruitful, transformation and apostolic leaders. Clergy who choose to participate work collaboratively in cohort groups. Leaders elaborate on material they have read or prepared and therefore are both learners and teachers. The seminar is supported by applied learning through project development, immediate feedback, case studies and on the spot coaching, so that students synthesize learning with real life experiences. Development is focused on core congregational and leadership competencies. The Clergy Seminar is facilitated by effective transformational leaders, GNJ Resource Directors, Superintendents and the bishop.
