1) Meet the Leaders of the Mission Leaders Conference in Orlando

Missio Nexus has made it easy to get to know the main session presenters and all the workshop leaders too. Just click the “biography” or “plus sign” beside each and you’ll learn more about each personality and backdrop.

Of course, let’s be honest: One of the *major* reasons of going to Missio Nexus’s “Future Mission” Mission Leaders Conference is also to network with all the agency leaders and workers in the hallways, too. Those are the unsung heroes who don’t appear on this webpage but still help make the event special. Sept. 19-21, Orlando. Hope you’ll pencil it in today.

7) You Must have Just About All Registered for Missio Nexus

…because they’ve just cited the outstanding earlybird registration momentum as being reason enough to *extend* the earlybird discount to Tuesday, June 4th. And why *wouldn’t* you want to register? Just about everybody else is going to be there, including speakers like of speakers including Dr. Jay Gary, Ed Stetzer, K.A. Ellis, Preshan De Visser, James Kelly, Andrew Brunson, and many others. Here’s our dare: Ask one of your peers… a missions agency CEO, a church missions leader, a mobilizer concerned about the nation, the point person at your agency home office who deals with finances and/or legal matters… just ask them. Say something like, “Hey — I’ve been hearing about this ‘Missio Nexus’ thing in Orlando. Are you going to that?” Honestly. Try it. Studies have shown that 3 out of 4 people you ask will say they’re already registered. So our question is — how do we encourage the remaining 25% in the midst of their feelings of being left out in the cold? Answer: Send them to this link:


(That big exhale-sound you’re hearing is a collective sigh of relief on the part of the final 25%, realizing that they can get the earlybird discount too.)

They’ll help you grapple with questions like, “How do we get all staff, not just “security” staff, to be more effective decision-makers in risk?

How do leaders apply risk assessment theory and know what to do to improve individual, team, and organizational decision making in cross-cultural risk? How do we assess staff in risk and what biases may be operating in their decision making? When facing overwhelming uncertainty, how do we know when we have enough information?” If these questions sound interesting, run, don’t walk, to …!event/2019/5/1/24-risk-decision-making-for-leaders
