In August, Anabaptist Mennonite Biblical Seminary (AMBS) is launching a new Practical Leadership Training program to help pastors, lay leaders, community leaders and leaders of nonprofit organizations increase their capacity to provide effective Anabaptist leadership in a variety of settings.

This program grew out of a listening process in which church leaders shared that they needed practical leadership skills to meet challenges resulting from the pandemic, polarization, shifting church commitments and an unpredictable future. In response, AMBS designed a program consisting of modules focusing on four areas: administrationleadershipcontextual engagement and well-being.

Practical Leadership Training modules are offered in five different formats: in-person seminars, webinars, in-person leadership clinics, four-session online workshops, and six-week online short courses. Participants can select the modules that are best suited to their interests and needs. Please see the Practical Leadership Training Flier for details on upcoming modules. For more information, see
