May 18-19 (Fri & Sat) - Strengths Based Leadership 301
Cost: $235

We are each fearfully & wonderfully made with a combination of talents that God gifts us with that make you unique among everyone who has ever lived. The talents are the source of the strengths we have to serve God and accomplish the good works He has prepared in advance for us to do. These same strengths are the source of the best work we do and the ways we have to bless the people we live & serve beside. 

Strengths Based Leadership is a two-day course designed to help leaders understand the role of their strengths in their personal leadership style, become transformational leaders, and explore how to more effectively lead their teams.

A Highlight of this course is working together with the rest of the cohort members to develop a context specific, individual leadership challenge that participants discern they are being called to engage in.  

Location: New Beginning Church of the Nazarene 12350 Jesse Smith Rd. Mt. Airy, MD. 21771
Time: 8:30AM – 5:00PM (both days)
Cost: $235.00 ($30.00 for 301 refresher) 
Instructor: Dr. David W. Bowser
Registration Deadline: May 11, 2018


June 8-9 (Friday & Saturday) - Strengths Based Leadership 201
Cost: $235

Building on what is learned in the 101 Strengths Advocate, the goal of this course is to provide a concrete understanding of an individual’s strengths as well as an overall knowledge of each of the 34 talent themes.

The Strengths Advisor 201 course equips advisors to work with one-on-one with others to help them understand their God-given strengths and apply what they “do best” in their life and in ministry.  As a result of this training, participants are equipped with skills designed to help others understand and express their unique ministry within their congregation or faith community.

Location: Mid-Atlantic District Missional Resource Center, 108 Central Ave. Glen Burnie, MD. 2106
Instructor: Julie Vyas
Date: June 8-9, 2018 Friday & Saturday
Time: 8:30 AM - 5:00 PM both days
Cost: $235.00

Rev. Dolores Joyner and family want to thank DS Dr. David and Mrs. Diane Bowser, MAD staff, MAD pastors, congregations, and Grace Church for their many acts of kindness surrounding the passing of our loved one, Pastor Claude Joyner.

The encouragement and strength that we draw from those kindnesses cannot be measured. Personally, continued prayers, calls, texts, and the like would be appreciated and not a bother to receive as I get used to my new “normal” without my loved one. I’m moving with God now…and next!  Rev. Dolores Joyner
