Convoy of Hope

Earthquakes, floods, hurricanes, fires… It feels like every week there’s another catastrophe. And although these kinds of disasters are often unpredictable, there’s one thing we can absolutely count on – that, during times of crisis, organizations like Convoy of Hope will respond with food, water, hygiene kits, and other essential relief supplies.

Convoy uses a network of global churches to provide help and hope where it’s needed most. And, best of all, they understand where true hope – living hope – comes from, and are working to ensure the people they help know that, too.

Already this year, Convoy of Hope has responded to more than 65 disasters and humanitarian crises, many which never even hit the news cycle.

You can learn more and support Convoy’s work at convoy.org/carey.

Lead With Confidence and Clarity. Grow Your Church.

As leaders, we tend to see the challenges and roadblocks before other people do.

We've all been there before...

  • You need to refresh your vision for the future but know that change will be an issue for that person.
  • You're overstaffed (or missing a key role) and can't find the right person to fill the role.
  • You aren't reaching enough new people even though you've tried everything that's working for other churches.
  • You can see the issue but aren't confident in what to do about it.

And with another Sunday morning coming up, it'll just have to wait until next week when you have a few minutes to figure it out.

Now ask yourself this:

What would it feel like to have those answers at your fingertips 24/7?

Whether it's reaching new people, improving your preaching, increasing volunteers, refreshing your vision, engaging your staff, or any of the countless challenges we face as church leaders, The Art of Leadership Academy will equip you to lead your church with confidence and clarity.

Between comprehensive church leadership courses, live coaching calls, staff and volunteer training resources, and direct access to a private online community of senior-level church leaders, you'll get the exact insights and answers that fuel your church for growth.
