Aug 8, 2017

Gary Nelson and Peter Dickens discuss leading in disorienting times.

Gary Nelson is a published author, dynamic speaker, and recognized Christian leader in Canada and around the world. In 2010, he began his term as the 12th President and Vice Chancellor of Tyndale University College and Seminary in Canada.

Prior to becoming president of Tyndale, Gary Nelson served for 10 years as General Secretary of Canadian Baptist Ministries. During those years, the Canadian Baptists experienced striking growth, expanding the organization’s global impact in the areas of leadership development, theological education, sustainable community development, and the development of key educational resources for congregations across Canada.

Peter Dickens held a PhD in Leadership and Change from Antioch University in Ohio with a focus in strategic change in complex, adaptive social systems. He was a successful entrepreneur, business leader, and greatly beloved member of the Tyndale University College and Seminary community.

A church and theological leader, Peter Dickens was passionate about using his experience and knowledge to prepare the next generation of leaders to thrive in the rapidly-changing 21st century landscape. A proponent of complexity theory and servant leadership, Peter inspired many students to abandon common stereotypes and develop their ability to lead “subtly and quietly, from a place of confidence”.

Together, Gary Nelson and Peter Dickens wrote “Leading in Disorienting Times: Navigating Church and Organizational Change.”
