At ElderLink Central Texas, we strive to provide a resource for developing or honing leadership skills that are critical for successful leadership in almost any environment. Over the past several years we have explored numerous topics centered around effective church leadership. ElderLink Central Texas offers a refreshing getaway, providing encouragement and motivation as well as enlightenment.

From Fear to Hope: Leading Courageously in the Kingdom

Aging congregations, disappearing youth, as well as the hurts and hopes of our communities press on congregations large and small. The combination and pressure of these and other factors can result in anxious people and leaders paralyzed by fear. However, the gospel speaks in fresh and powerful ways. Nothing is impossible with God; what we need are leaders who will dare to risk for the sake of gospel with hope and expectation in God's amazing ways.

Thus leadership is an act of courage. It is the capacity to imagine God's preferred future. It is the conscious choice to lean into the future, not the past, to embrace hope over fear. ElderLink 2014-15 pursues this conviction and invites you to join the conversation!
