Our Keynote Speaker: DR. GIL RENDLE 

“Good leadership is not enough,” says Dr. Rendle who has facilitated conversations with denominational leaders for more than 40 years on how to deal with difficult times. His most recent 2019 book, QUIETLY COURAGEOUS, Leading the Church in a Changing World, presents a radically different way of thinking about leadership in the Church today. He will guide participants toward gaining the skills required for “telling the Story that will get us through the wilderness.”
Dr. Gil Rendle, Keynote Speaker
Beginning as a United Methodist pastor and then serving as a consultant, Dr. Rendle has worked
over the last 11 years, as a senior vice president of Leadership Ministry at Texas Methodist Foundation facilitating conversations with denominational leaders on how to lead courageously in today’s rapidly changing cultural and spiritual environment. He previously worked for 12 years with the Alban Institute (now Alban at Duke Divinity School) as an author and seminar leader.
