Leadership Institute at the

Church of the Resurrection

cor li 2015Leadership Institute at the United Methodist Church of the Resurrection brings together clergy, church staff and volunteers who share a passion for renewing churches. Lean in to our mission of making disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world by investing in your leadership and leaders of your church. Leaders with fresh ideas, renewed focus and inspired by the Holy Spirit are able to unleash the potential of a church and community.  Over the past 15 years, more than 20,000 leaders have returned to their congregations and communities ready to “Go and Lead” with impact, vitality, excellence, passion and boldness.  

The United Methodist Foundation of Arkansas funds over 100 participants from Arkansas Churches.  Along with experiencing a congregation and pastor/staff leadership that shares the story of God’s revival, our leaders gain skills for midwifing revival in their own congregations.

In addition to registering and attending COR LI, every grant church will be required to submit an action plan following the event.





To prepare to submit an action plan, you can download this worksheet for your leaders that attended (this is the same form that was included for every grant church):

We would also love to hear your feedback as we report the impact of the UMFA’s investment. Please encourage every attendee to submit a survey:
