Why You Should Attend Leadership Summit

"This is a guidebook for learning to lead in a world we weren’t prepared for."
As soon as I encountered that line at the beginning of Canoeing the Mountains by Tod Bolsinger, I knew I had to read the book. And as soon as I finished it, I knew I had to invite Tod to speak at ECPA’s Leadership Summit, May 3-4 in Nashville.
Thankfully, Tod had room in his schedule and was energized by the idea of speaking and interacting with the leaders of Christian publishing. He said yes, and Leadership Summit 2016 was on its way.
Using Tod’s concepts of Christian leadership in uncharted territory as a launching pad, your ECPA team has assembled a terrific group of speakers and presenters, including Scott Sauls, pastor and author of Jesus Outside the Lines; Jeff Wright, CEO of Urban Ministries; Kristin McLean, director of new business development for Nielsen Book; Ed Stetzer, PhD, executive director of LifeWay Research; Trillia Newbell, author of United: Captured by God’s Vision for Diversity; Chantal Restivo-Allessi, Chief Digital Officer and EVP International for HarperCollins Publishing; Mark Kuyper, BISG executive director; and Caleb Kaltenbach, pastor and author of Messy Grace; all joining Tod Bolsinger PhD, VP for Vocation and Formation, Fuller Theological Seminary.
Our theme for Leadership Summit is RE:IMAGINE LEADERSHIP. The idea is to see yourself among those who are leading organizations through “the shifting geography of faith” (another great line from Tod) as you reimagine and discover effective strategies for serving THE CHURCH, identifying and recruiting EMERGING LEADERS, and discovering & engaging READERS.
You have a lot on your plate already, but I believe that your investment in Leadership Summit will bring you and your organization a significant return.
Don’t miss this opportunity to learn from the best, to interact and network with industry colleagues, and to be inspired once again by this incredible business and ministry we all have the privilege of serving and shaping.
