Our gathering consists of two parts:

1. “The Strategic Power of Inclusive Leadership” seminar led by Dr. Kim Wells, Executive Director of Executive Education and the Center for Career Excellence at Howard University in Washington, D.C.
2. Roundtable Discussion: Whatever topics you choose, such as church and staff leadership, volunteers, organization design, teamwork. finance, stewardship, HR/benefits, legal, IT, media, communications, facilities, security, etc.—whatever needs fixing or improvement. Facilitated by Patrick Coelho, CFO of the EPC Office of the General Assembly.

Cost is $100 per person and includes seminar speaker, two on-site lunches, Thursday dinner, and refreshments. New this year is an optional social day, separate from the roundtable.

His work has gained the attention of Dr. Marshall Goldsmith, who in 2022 named Kim to the prestigious Marshall Goldsmith 100 which is recognized by many as the world’s leading group of executive coaches and leadership thought leaders in business and higher education. Kim also serves the global industry of leadership and higher education as a member of the corporate boards of Wiley and Higher Digital Inc., two of the world’s most influential higher education research, modernization, and development organizations.


Kim will lead a thought-provoking session on The Strategic Power of Inclusive Leadership in establishing advanced leadership capabilities, and in enabling effective organizational practices and performance that transform “next-generation” faith communities. Projected outcomes for participants include: 

Being more aware of the need to have an “Inclusive Leadership Mindset” in leading organizations and teams.
Understanding the strategic benefits and outcomes of enabling inclusive organizational practices that drive healthy church growth, improve member experience, and establish effective community engagement.
Being more aware of the potential risks to faith communities and their leaders when they fail to adapt inclusiveness in their strategies and practices.
Identifying important and measurable communication and process gaps that would benefit from strategic inclusion.
Having a great time and overall learning experience!
