Building Resilience 2015

Join Rick and Tim plus others in each state for a one day training, equipping and networking workshop for those with a ministry of mentoring.  Hosted by Australian Christian Mentoring Network.

Resilience is key to sustainability. Fostering resilience in those we mentor is one of greatest gifts we can give them. It can enable leaders to manage stress successfully, to last the distance in ministry, to recover effectively from times of pressure and to maintain healthy and productive lives and ministries.

This one-day seminar will give you insights and practical take-home resources that you can immediately apply to your own mentoring relationships. Along with transforming information you will workshop the materials presented in peer groups to enrich your mentoring practice.

Key Presenter: Dr Rick Lewis is primarily a practitioner of mentoring, serving around 60 senior Christian leaders in Australia, the UK, Europe and South-east Asia. For 30 years he was a local church pastor, all the while devoting some time to mentoring, consulting with churches, and training. Since 2011 he has worked full-time as an itinerant mentor, consultant, trainer, conference speaker and visiting lecturer. He holds a Doctor of Ministry degree from Fuller Theological Seminary, having conducted action research into mentoring processes for pastors. His first book, Mentoring Matters, published in 2009, deals especially with formal, structured mentoring for Christian leaders. Rick is a member of the European Mentoring and Coaching Council and chairs the leadership group of the Australian Christian Mentoring Network.

Each seminar will feature responses by local mentoring leaders and a Practical Skills workshop facilitated by Tim Dyer of the Johnmark Extension.
