Rev. Janice Virtue, Educator, Consultant, and Coach, will lead us in a day apart. For the last two decades, Janice Virtue has focused her ministry on creating leadership development and leader formation programs that encourage the church's clergy and congregational leaders to offer their best talent to the church. An ordained elder in the United Methodist Church, Janice is most in tune with God's call when teaching, supporting, and challenging church leaders to live more fully into their own callings. In recent years Janice has developed long-term leadership development initiatives for clergy in ten annual conferences including Advancing Pastoral Leadership for young clergy in Texas, LEAP (Leadership Excellence Advancement Program) in Louisiana and Courage to Lead in Florida.
