This quarter: Heroic Leadership (Phil Strout)

The West is experiencing a leadership vacuum. Thankfully, they do not leave us without any hope for change. We are presented here with a radically different way of understanding leadership; different, that is, from the vast majority of models espoused in the West today. The philosophy of leadership you will come to understand is that of the Jesuits, whose practices are so effective that their companies have changed the world.

Fridays @ 6:30—8:30pm, Sep 18th-Nov 6th

$150, Zoom class

Let us know if you’d like to join us!

Our God is one God in three Persons, a God who wants us to be drawn to Him and know Him. I believe that in the Trinity I, we, have the best possibly of getting to know Him and understand Him with our limited faculties.

— Paul Sculley, “The Holy Spirit” – Vineyard Institute

Testimonials from FPU at Liberty Vineyard

The class has been transformational to us and the way we live life. We feel encouraged, challenged, and deeply hopeful God does have a hope and a future planned and that we get to participate in the planning of that. The class was wonderful and the fruit it bore is obvious.” (Z, 2019)

This is great, thank you!” (K, 2020)

I just wanted to say I’m so thankful for this group and all of the support! I love how we can feel safe to talk about such challenging money issues that have mostly been very embarrassing to some of us. Here, we are all in a safe, supportive environment, and it feels great to see that there can be an end in sight to this debt, while making lasting friendships!” (E, 2019)

It’s truly been a blessing and certainly encouraging!” (D, 2019)

The class helped us do a check-up on our finances. One of the action steps was to redo our will, so our family can have more peace of mind.” (P, 2020)
