Developing Leaders Conference

For over 10 years now, the Developing Leaders Conference has been an effective training exercise for your emerging and existing leaders. This year, the conference will be held in Darwin. I encourage you to identify one or more staff in your school who may be ready to take the next step in leadership, or refine their skills.

The conference commences at 6pm on 4 September and will finish by 2:30pm on Thursday 7 September. The conference will be held at Mantra Pandanas hotel, whilst accommodation with be at Mantra Esplanade. The hotels are close together.

Playing on the location in our theme, ‘Build Up, Step Up’, there is an intentional focus on unpacking what it means and what it looks like to lead Christian Education now and into the future. By building on biblical foundations, delegates will also be supported with a range or practical tools for leadership.

It is the desire of the team, to encourage and inspire future leaders, to answer the call and step up as Gospel centred leaders in the prevailing cultural context. Participants will be provided with an opportunity to explore how to best respond to the challenges of leadership, as they seek to take on positions of responsibility, grow in capacity and serve faithfully in Christian Education.

Delegates will explore the following topics:

  • A Biblical foundation of leadership
  • The breadth of leadership – Some tools for the toolbox
  • Our cultural context and the impact on leadership
  • Leading in your cultural moment
  • Leading without a title and the challenges of leadership

Don’t miss out as we hear from speakers including Dr Rod Thompson, Justin Cook (from Canada) and the Hon Mr Terry Mills, as we explore the call of leadership.

Please note that this year we will also be running an inaugural Teaching and Learning Conference, ‘Educating for Deeper Learning’. This will be held at the same time as the Developing Leaders Conference. The two conferences will experience overlap in the mornings and in the evening.

You can also indicate any interest to visit Gawa Christian School on Elcho Island during the day on Monday 4 September. Take it from me, that is a once in a life time, beautiful experience.
