Gil Rendle Speaks October 28 in Urbana

Author Discusses Book in Public Workshop

Popular consultant and author Gil Rendle will present a study of his book Journey in the Wilderness: New Life for Mainline Churches on Friday, Oct. 28, in Urbana, Ill. The event is open to the public. Mark your calendar now and plan to attend. Registration information will be available this summer. Cost for the Friday workshop will be $25, which includes the cost of lunch.

Journey in the Wilderness is part textbook on church leadership, part field guide for identifying organizational behaviors we have all seen but could never name, and part instruction manual on how to leave behind systems that are no longer conducive to our mission. (Introduction)

Rendle’s workshop is part of a year-long study of his book by synod commissioners. He also will speak to commissioners during the October 29 synod meeting.

Copies of Rendle’s book, Journey in the Wilderness, will be available for sale. This event is sponsored by the synod in partnership with the presbyteries of Blackhawk, Chicago, Great Rivers and Wabash Valley.
