Andy Seidel is coordinator of Theological Seminary School of Leadership and mentor for many generations of ATS graduates from Romania. He recently taught in three different locations his course on Leadership that’s already translated and printed into Romanian. These conferences were organized by BIG Impact as following:
- Saturday, September 5th – Timisoara, Aletheia Church
- Tuesday, September 8th – Brasov, Romanian Baptist Church
- Saturday, September 12th – Galati, Emanuel Christian Church
J. Brain Eby co-trained with Andy; the teaching focused on the following themes:
- The process Jesus Christ used in making His disciples, as described in the Gospel of Mark
- How Andy’s book on leadership can be used by pastors, elders and missionaries involved in making new servant leaders.
According to one of the attendees, those who were part of this conference were impressed by the fact Jesus created experiences in the process of making disciples, as leaders. This is something they all need to work on in the near future: creating experiences in forming the servant leaders they work with.
Each of the attendees received a copy of Seidel’s book, to use it in equipping the leaders in their local church.
