Each spring, in partnership with the Virginia Conference of the United Methodist Church, Virginia Wesleyan University hosts a workshop for UMC pastors that yields continuing education units. The Robert F. Boyd Institute will take place on campus March 19-20, 2018. In this seminar, Dr. Tod Bolsinger, Vice President and Chief of Leadership Formation and Assistant Professor of Practical Theology at Fuller Theological Seminary, will share insight and lessons on leadership in a changing world. The presentation will be based on Dr. Bolsinger’s award-winning book, Canoeing the Mountains: Christian Leadership in Uncharted Territory, which offers both realism and hope, as well as tangible ways to lead differently when you go “off the map.” Dr. Bolsinger earned a Ph.D. in theology and Master of Divinity from Fuller Theological Seminary. In addition to Canoeing the Mountains, he authored It Takes a Church to Raise a Christian: How the Community of God Transforms Lives, and The New Media Frontier: Blogging, Vlogging, and Podcasting for Christ. He speaks, consults and is an executive coach for corporate, non-profit, educational and church organizations in transformational leadership. The Robert F. Boyd Institute is named for Trustee Emeritus Bob Boyd, a co-founding member of the VWU Board of Trustees.  Read more about the program and register to attend at
