Reynolds Leadership Program

The Royce and Jane Reynolds Leadership Program

The Royce and Jane Reynolds Program in Church Leadership Program provides the opportunity for 24 select clergy leaders to complete a year-long intensive leadership development certificate program. The Reynolds program is a joint venture between the United Methodist Foundation of Western North Carolina, NC and the Center for Creative Leadership, in 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. The generous gift of Royce and Jane Reynolds makes it possible to offer the Reynolds Program in Church Leadership to 24 United Methodist pastors from Western North Carolina, North Carolina, South Carolina, North Georgia, Virginia and Florida with at least five years of full-time church experience, beyond educational requirements, and who are not moving to a new appointment as of July 1st.
