What’s the purpose of the seminar?
In this generation, many people have left the faith because they lacked proper discipleship through their struggles in a post-Christian society.
The job of most discipleship focused pastors consists of “putting out fires” and managing members and disciples’ crises. They are “shepherd firefighters”. They’re not leading people, they’re managing crises. This process is exhausting and does not create real spiritual growth in the long term, tending only to comfort people in their spiritual and emotional confusion. The crisis cycle is never broken, and the church becomes increasingly superficial.
Coty created the Intelligent Leading Seminar, to equip Christian leaders who desire to lead with intelligence and effectiveness. The seminar is a practical tool for pastors, teachers, missionaries, intercessors, and other mature believers who are leading ministries in the church or who desire to lead. The seminar is in Portuguese with English interpretation.
Before you begin, take time to pray; you can pray something like this:
