A View from the Mountaintop: Leadership in the Ultimate Liminal Space
A webinar conversation between two old friends and colleagues.
Tod Bolsinger and Jim Toole.
For over 10 years Tod Bolsinger and Jim Toole ministered together at San Clemente Presbyterian Church in California. Jim went on to become the Senior Pastor of St. Andrews Presbyterian Church in Tucson, AZ and Tod went to Fuller Seminary where he now leads the Church Leadership Initiative at the De Pree Center for Leadership. Jim's pastoral ministry has always been marked by his joyful mentoring of younger staff and Tod's ministry today is working with senior leaders navigating change.
Jim is now facing stage 4 bile duct cancer and puts out a video message to friends and family every week that offers his reflections on living with cancer and facing the future with faith. Tod invited Jim to join him on a webinar where they could discuss the leadership lessons that come from reaching the moment where you must prepare your people to go into the future without you.
Using the imagery of Moses and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. who gave lessons from the mountaintop while viewing the Promised Land that they would not enter, these two partners in ministry will discuss the lessons every leader can learn about life and leadership in the ultimate liminal space.
