Ian King will be leading a session on: The Management of Change
Ian is the Leader of Restore Community Church in Loughton, Essex, a church that has been through a huge amount of change over the last few years. I first heard Ian give this seminar at the New Wine Leaders Conference earlier this year. Having previously been on an entire course on management of change, I was amazed to learn so much. Ian spoke such inspired common sense I resolved to try and get as many leaders as I could to hear this fantastic presentation.
I would be grateful if you could let us know if you and/or members of your team are coming on 14 May – we will provide a simple sandwich lunch, so it would be helpful to have numbers for catering.
