Growing Spiritual Leaders 
Deepening our connection to Christ and one another
Saturday, March 30, 2019
9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.
Hidenwood Presbyterian Church
414 Hiden Boulevard
Newport News, VA 23606

Transformation of a leader’s personal spiritual life is at the root of transformation of a church.  During all our busyness of church, personal and  professional life, this is a time to step away for a few hours to consider the following topics:

• Spiritual practices for today’s leaders.

• How to mine the story of your life for “God stories” which can be  used to bear
  witness to the work of the Holy Spirit.

• Experimenting with forms of meditation.

• Resources to grow spiritual depth in personal and congregational life.

• Bible study & small group discussion focused on leadership and transformation.

Led by The Rev. Jessie MacMillan, Connectional Presbyter of New Castle Presbytery. Jessie is a graduate of DePauw University in Greencastle, Indiana (B.A. in religion) and Princeton Theological Seminary (M.Div.). She has served churches in Roswell, New Mexico; Fort Myers, Florida and North Olmsted, Ohio.  Her ministry in churches has primarily included intensive Bible study, book discussions, spirituality retreats and preaching on the work of the Holy Spirit in transforming lives and churches.
