Prophetess Tawanda Sweeting thinks that everyone is a leader. I believe that everybody has the leadership potential on the inside, its just that they havent tapped that vein yet, explained the co-pastor of Victory Restoration Tabernacle. To help individuals tap into their dormant abilities, the Dania Beach-based church is hosting a free leadership conference. Led by Apostle Samuel Clark, the two-part seminar will include sessions on Saturday, Feb. 4th and Saturday, Feb. 18th. According to Sweeting, the goal of the seminars is to inspire current and potential leaders , help them focus on the kingdom and empower people to utilize godly principals that will work in the church, the workplace, school, community and even the world. Since founding the Kingdom Generation Ministries 17 years ago, Clark has dedicated himself to evangelizing about equipping people to become better leaders. This conferences theme is 20/20 Focus which was inspired by the chapter of Mark in which Jesus restores sight to a blind man. Were going to be dealing with the two main components of leadership which is vision and focus, explained Clark, whose ministry is based in Jacksonville and West Palm Beach. The vision component deals with your plans, your goals and your overall agenda, but when we talk about focus we are talk about remembering your original purpose. Clarke gave the example of pastors who are juggling too many side hustles besides pastoring. They become a jack-of-all-trades and so the central purpose of their ministry winning souls for Jesus Christ moves away from their mission, Clark said. Sweeting believes everyone who participates will leave the seminars having learned several valuable lessons. In a nutshell, people should learn how to impact others and how to build up the communities in which they live, she said. Victory Restoration Tabernacles is located at 4293 Griffin Road in Dania Beach. Both sessions of the conference will take place from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. For information, call 954-258-9608.
