The Indiana Conference, through the Emerging Leaders Team, has a new opportunity coming in 2018 for all those who support Emerging Leaders and you are invited to a special day to experience it! On November 18, 2017, at 4 p.m. you are invited to be the first to learn about how to be involved in an Emerging Leaders Leadership Lab. You can attend Preview Day at the University of Indianapolis or through Facebook Live.

Leadership Labs are an opportunity for those who support Emerging Leaders to further develop as leaders through intentional interactions in a small group experience. Learning will be discussion based and spread out over 2 months. Our first expression of Leadership Labs will include 2 in-person meetings and 2 online meetings. There will be no cost to be a part of a Leadership Lab. It will be a fantastic time of connection and growth!

The very first Leadership Labs experience will be focused on "Finding Your Spark" based on 2 Timothy 1:6-10: 
"And the special gift of ministry you received when I laid hands on you and prayed - keep that ablaze! God doesn't want us to be shy with his gifts, but bold and loving and sensible. So don't be embarrassed to speak up for our Master or for me, his prisoner. Take your share of suffering for the Message along with the rest of us. We can only keep on going, after all, by the power of God, who first saved us and then called us to his holy work. We had nothing to do with it. It was all his idea, a gift prepared for us in Jesus long before we knew anything about it. But we know it now. Since the appearance of our Savior, nothing could be plainer: death defeated, life vindicated in a steady blaze of light, all through the work of Jesus." (The Message)
The Emerging Leaders Team can't wait to tell you all about Leadership Labs! Please join us for Preview Day so you can experience why we are excited about this new opportunity for you to further develop your leadership and love as a support leader of emerging leaders! We will see you on November 18 at 4 p.m. at UIndy or on Facebook Live. If you are planning to attend Preview Day at the University of Indianapolis or have any questions, let me know at emily.krach@inumc.org
