The MESA office is pleased to sponsor the Partners in Ministry Leadership Academy, an annual leadership development opportunity held each summer. The Leadership Academy has been a valuable program supported by the Network for Mercy Education for many years, and MESA is proud to continue this fine tradition. Participants share in the wisdom of presenters who come from varied experiences and positions throughout the system. The 2020 Partners in Ministry Leadership Academy will be held July 27-28 in Belmont, North Carolina. Questions? Please contact Kimberly Baxter.

Who Attends?

Those newly appointed to a leadership position in the school (faculty/staff/administration/board); those relatively new to a Mercy school; those who seek renewal or would like to explore a greater exercise of leadership; those who wish to know more about the charism, core values and tradition of Mercy that they might share more fully in the mission of Mercy.

Each participant shares in the learning and dialogue. Individually and communally, there is renewed faithfulness to the mission of Mercy. Participants return to their ministries with an increased capacity to embrace and enhance the Mercy Charism in their school communities. Participants are encouraged to reflect on their individual gifts, to dialogue with others and to return to their ministry committed to exercising leadership for mission.
