Reynolds Program in Church Leadership

December 9, 2014

The Royce and Jane Reynolds Program in Church Leadership provides the opportunity for 24 select clergy leaders to complete a yearlong intensive program in leadership development. The Reynolds program is a joint venture between the United Methodist Foundation of Western North Carolina, Inc. and the Center for Creative Leadership, an international nonprofit educational institution.

Created out of a deep concern for the development of effective pastoral leaders for Christ’s Church, the goal of the program is to assist strong pastors in becoming congregational leaders who develop a clear vision for the church. Participants will be invited into a study of their leadership gifts and challenges and the impact of those gifts and challenges on the creation of congregational vision, its articulation and its fulfillment.

Applications are available at 

The deadline is annually in April.
