Intercultural Leadership in Diversity-Oriented Churches
A. Brian Leander, PhD
Thursday, March 23, 2:00-3:30 pm EDT
Dr. Leander will introduce the concept of "cultural intelligence" and the Cultural Intelligence Scale, including its four dimensions of drive, knowledge, strategy and action. He will explore the research that validates each dimension, discuss who has used the scale and how they’ve applied it toward leadership development, and share findings from cultural intelligence research relevant to leaders of congregations and organizations. Approximately one-third of the webinar will be interactive time for comments, questions and conversation with Dr. Leander. Leaders and leadership teams who want to learn more about how leadership can enhance and support diversity in congregational and organizational life are strongly encouraged to attend.
Major Challenges Facing the Contemporary Church: Greg Boyd in Conversation with Select AMBS Faculty
Thursday, March 16, 2:00-3:30 pm EDT • Migration and Pentecost: Greg Boyd in Conversation with Safwat Marzouk, Associate Professor of Old Testament and Jamie Pitts, Assistant Professor of Anabaptist Studies
Thursday, April 20, 2:00-3:30 pm EDT • Creation in Travail and Creation Renewed: Greg Boyd in Conversation with Malinda Berry, Assistant Professor of Theology and Ethics
Thursday, May 25, 2:00-3:30 pm EDT • Conflict, Oppression and Shalom: Greg Boyd in Conversation with Janna Hunter Bowman, Assistant Professor of Peace Studies and Christian Social Ethics
AMBS faculty recently identified three major global challenges facing the contemporary church: migration, creation in travail, and conflict and oppression.
Through special curricular emphases in each of these areas over the next few years, AMBS seeks to speak to both the stress created by these global realities and the capacity of God’s reconciling work in Jesus Christ to speak to these challenges.
In this webinar series, Dr. Greg Boyd, a scholar, author, pastor and leading Neo-Anabaptist thinker, will interact with select AMBS professors around each of the three emphases. Does Boyd agree that these issues are important ones for an Anabaptist seminary to address? Why or why not? How are matters of migration, creation in travail, and conflict and oppression being addressed in Boyd’s circles? Do these issues connect with the Neo-Anabaptist movement? Why or why not?
Join us for one or all of these conversations with Greg Boyd. Boyd is senior pastor of Woodland Hills Church in St. Paul, Minn., and president of ReKnew. He has authored or coauthored 18 books, including the best-selling Letters from a Skeptic (David C. Cook, 1994). His most recent books are Present Perfect: Finding God in the Now (Zondervan, 2010), and Benefit of the Doubt: Breaking the Idol of Certainty (Baker Books, 2013). Greg received his PhD from Princeton Theological Seminary and his MDiv from Yale Divinity School.
