The Crucible: Going Deeper in Exploring your Leadership Journey (an event for leaders)


Part of the practical outworking of my recent research into ‘crucible‘ experiences is a morning event for leaders that I am planning along with Bishop Ken Clarke.

Three of the seasoned leaders who helped me with the research have agreed to take part in this leaders’ event, discussing the events and influences that have shaped them along the course of their leadership journey.

  • Roz Stirling, who is director of Cleopas – a ministry that aims to help Christians (not least leaders) develop their spiritual walk;
  • Bishop Ken Clarke, mission director for SAMS UK and Ireland (South American Mission Society);
  • Dr Trevor Morrow, Minister Emeritus of Lucan Presbyterian Church which he led for 31 years.

As well as gleaning from the wisdom of the experience of these leaders, the morning will give an opportunity for leaders to reflect on their own leadership journeys as well as well as the opportunity to meet and spend time with other leaders.

The conference will be held on Thursday, February 9 at Edenmore Golf and Country Club, just 10 minutes from the M1 roundabout at Moira, and will begin with tea/coffee and scones at 10.30 and will end at 1 p.m. While lunch is not included in the programme, it will be possible to have lunch in Edenmore’s restaurant at the close of the event.

If you would like to know more about the event, please feel free to contact me via this website. If you can join us, the cost of the morning will be £5 and you would help us help Edenmore with the logistics if you could confirm your attendance by emailing Gillian Neill at the SAMS office in Lurgan.
