Bishop’s Leadership Academy


The Bishop’s Leadership Academy for Clergy Excellence is a ministry of the Indiana Annual Conference of the United Methodist Church that brings together emerging clergy leaders.  The Academy has 3 primary objectives:

1.  To grow leaders prepared for the church’s future.

2.  To create a community of mutual mentoring and collaborative learning.

3.  To celebrate and expand in gifts as leaders.

20-25 candidates will be identified each year as emerging leaders by the District Superintendents and senior Indiana Conference leadership and invited to participate.

The fruits of the conversations and study will be shared publicly here, including key learnings, recommended books, and other resources.
