The Minnesota Annual Conference is on a mission to grow in love of God and neighbor, reach new people, and heal a broken world. In order to do this, we are on a constant journey of learning and growing in order to have a meaningful presence in this ever-changing world. This Competency Model is a tool we’ve developed to create a common language around the knowledge, skills, and abilities churches and leaders need to thrive at 3 different levels. Use this Competency Model to help chart your course of growth in faith and in leadership.
We have accumulated a wealth of resources designed to help churches and individuals reach their growth goals within each of the nine areas outlined by the Competency Model. These books, websites, and podcasts represent a variety of perspectives and approaches so that you can find just what you need to take your next steps as a follower of Jesus and leader of the church.
A pastor's ability to provide effective leadership depends greatly on your own total well-being. On this page, you will find the resources and support you need to make positive changes in each of these well-being dimensions: financial, mental/emotional, physical, spiritual, and total well-being.
