This evening performance-lecture explores insights from jazz improvisation for understanding and exercising leadership in the church and in society. Hear and discuss key elements in the complex and vibrant dynamics of improvisation that suggest new ways of framing what leaders do, how leaders are formed, and how communities flourish.

Mark is also Professor of Old Testament and Congregational Studies at the Missional Training Center, Phoenix. Mark is a trained jazz pianist and enjoys thinking and writing collaboratively with his wife, Erin Goheen Glanville.
