Emmaus and Chrysalis Greetings!
I am writing to let you know of an opportunity for leadership development designed especially for board members and/or community members for both Emmaus and Chrysalis.
A Leadership Development event is being held in The Woodlands, Texas on Saturday, September 10, 2011 at The Woodlands United Methodist Church, 2200 Lake Woodlands Drive. I wanted to send out this notice so that you could mark your calendars. We are sending out this notice to all leaders of the Emmaus/Chrysalis communities within 2-3 hours of The Woodlands.
We held a similar Leadership Development Event last year at 1st United Methodist Church – Westchase Campus. If you were in attendance last year, it would be helpful for you to know that some of the same topics will be presented along with some new ones. We will be presenting presentations on: Servant Leadership, Board of Directors, 4th Day/Next Steps, Sponsorship, Table Dynamics and The 3 Day Event.
I am attaching a registration form so that we might know how many to plan for. Once you have completed your registration form, please return it to me at firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com. Please pass this registration form along to any interested new board members whose email addresses we might not have. Our hope is that you would be willing to put the attached flyer and registration form on your website in order to attract community members who might want to know more about Emmaus/Chrysalis as well.
The Leadership Development event will begin at 8:30am on Saturday, September 10th with fellowship and light breakfast snacks. The actual presentation will begin at 9am and conclude around 3:30pm.
We would also like to consider having separate clergy training and/or certification on Friday night. If anyone (clergy and laity alike) in your community is interested in attending this training, please let me know so that we can plan for that also. Mike Cave, our South Central Regional Clergy Leader for Emmaus and Chrysalis will be conducting that time with the clergy. Any questions about the clergy training should be addressed to Mike at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are excited coming to the Houston area again and we appreciate Houston North Emmaus Community being willing to host our event. We look forward to meeting you then. It promises to be an exciting time!
