Leaders Cohorts

Empowering the Next Generation of Reconciliation Leaders

This 1-year journey is for emerging leaders, who are actively involved in the ministry of reconciliation. This cohort is for those wanting to go deeper into reconciliation praxis, spiritual transformation, and leadership development. They will receive personal and small group mentoring in a monthly video call with Rev. Dr. Brenda Salter McNeil.

Each meeting will cover specific principles and practices from Dr. Brenda’s years of experience in the ministry of reconciliation. Leaders will be encouraged to bring the challenges they currently face in their context. 
Participants will receive customized solutions and strategies as well as information and advice. They will have access to peer mentoring and expand their network with other like-minded leaders.

Who is this for?

  • Emerging and executive reconciliation leaders, who are actively involved in the ministry of reconciliation, typically working in a church, college, ministry, or NGO setting.

What can you expect?

  • Principle-Based Coaching 
    Reconcilers will be given customized solutions, strategies, information, and advice addressing real-life ministry circumstances. This will be done through monthly cohort coaching meetings with other leaders and Dr. Brenda by appointment.

  • Networking with Reconciliation Leaders
    Reconcilers within each cohort will be given the opportunity to network with like-minded leaders. Relationship building is an intentional aspect of this mentoring process.
