Salt, light and feet of clay: Celebrating the ministry of lay people

With George Dunn CEO, Tenant Farmers Association

John Kirkham Hall King’s Park Conference and Sports Centre, Kings Park Road, Northampton, NN3 6LL

Often when we think about church and leadership we think immediately of clergy of various descriptions. But what about head teachers, office managers, newspaper editors, financial controllers, magistrates, farm managers, school governors, youth football coaches, scout leaders and chief executives?

In rural, suburban and urban communities across the UK, congregations are peppered with individuals such as these with spheres of influence that may never be touched by traditional forms of leadership within our churches.

Exercising Christian leadership in a secular context requires wisdom, sensitivity and strength. How can our rural churches find ways to nurture, support, protect and grow the leaders in our communities? And what might those leaders have to offer to our churches?

This event is for anyone who is interested in the nature and exercise of leadership in the rural church. Whether you’re a clergy person, lay leader, involved in a rural church or just curious, we’d love to see you!

George Dunn has been CEO of the Tenant Farmers Association (TFA) since January 1997 and is on the leadership team of his local, Reading-based, Elim Pentecostal church.
