Sustain Meeting (Auckland)

On the occupational hazards of Christian Leadership: burnout, loneliness, and practical atheism (to name a few)

A Conversation with Lisl Baker

Leadership comes with an array of challenges and opportunities.  Inevitably we experience different seasons in our leadership journey of growth, dormancy, abundance, pruning, harvest, hibernation and times of fallow ground. How do we navigate the different seasons of life and some of the particular occupational hazards of Christian leadership? We have invited Lisl Baker to share out of her own leadership experiences at our next Sustain meeting on Wednesday 13 November.

About our Speaker

Lisl Baker

Lisl Baker is on staff at Laidlaw College – a Canadian who originally planned to spend four months backpacking through New Zealand. Before arriving in Aotearoa in early 2018 Lisl spent four years working as an Assistant Pastor at a “liturgicostal” church in her neighbourhood in Vancouver, Canada. Prior to that, Lisl completed her Master’s in Christian Studies at Regent College in Vancouver with a focus in Marketplace Theology and was adamant that while she loved the church she did not ever want to work full time as a pastor. But God had other ideas. Lisl will share with us some of the challenges, joys, downright exhausting aspects, and wonderful surprises of studying theology and working full time as a pastor.
