The Foursquare Church continues to focus attention on the necessary skills for successful ministry leadership, and local church-based institutes have become an important instructional arm of our movement toward this goal.

On March 20–22, 2012, both current and prospective Foursquare institute leaders will gather at Life Pacific College in San Dimas, Calif., for the 2012 Foursquare Institute Symposium.

The symposium will emphasize the theme “Training for Core Competencies” and will consist of keynote sessions, workshops, Emerging Leader Network (ELN) and Hispanic tracks, as well as fellowship and networking, according to Dan Hedges, Foursquare national director of education and leadership development.

“We are keeping step with our district and national leaders who are calling us to a higher level of training that will better meet the needs of our churches,” Dan affirms.

Dan says the significant question that must be answered is this: “What are these essential competencies, and how can we better equip new and established leaders with them in church-sponsored training?”

Registration cost for the symposium is $100. Hotel rates range from $103-$130 per night. For more information, contact Dan Hedges via email, or by calling 213.989.4258.
