"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!"
