What Leaders Say

This Seabury Kellogg leadership week continues to be one of the most impactful and formative learning experiences for my current ministry on bishop’s staff.  Learning about the latest in communications, development, and organizational health from some of the brightest and gifted practitioners in their fields alongside some of the most gifted leaders in the Episcopal Church has strengthened my capacity to serve the congregations of the Diocese of Chicago.

--The Rev. Jennifer Baskerville-Burrows, Diocese of Chicago

The Kellogg program was transformational for me. It opened a window to a new world of resources to understand the daily work of ministry and to engage the dynamic world our church lives in.  Understanding networks, learning new ways to think about negotiation in daily work, analyzing failure for growth, and the dynamics of "following" for leaders were just a few of the topics that renewed and energized my work with congregational leaders and church colleagues.  I'll definitely be back!

--The Rev. Emily Mellott, Calvary Episcopal Church, Lombard, Ill.
