Rhythms for Thriving

Whether you are an established church leader or a brand-new believer, come and learn how to:

  • Embrace your story
  • Identify life-giving people
  • Cultivate stronger relationships
  • Live generously
  • Live gratefully
  • Stop procrastinating

Soul Strength will help you find ways to build meaningful relationships.   Personal transformation isn’t a destination, it’s a journey—one you can’t take alone.

Alan Ahlgrim PictureSpeaker: Dr. Alan Ahlgrim

Dr. Ahlgrim served 29 years as the founding pastor of Rocky Mountain Christian Church in Colorado, as well as helped to energize a national resurgence of church planting.  He is now leveraging the agony and ecstasy of 50 years of ministry in his encore role as founder and chief soul care officer of Covenant Connections.  He is the author of Soul Strength and the Soul Strength Discovery Journal, a guide into realizing a richer life.

Alan invests heavily in the hard work of heart work, helping other leaders serve well and finish well by connecting them in soul-enriching covenant groups.  These small, in-depth communities are transformational and produce remarkable renewal and resilience.  For more information visit

Leadership Seminar History

Manhattan Christian College hosts a variety of events throughout the year to educate, equip, and enrich Christian leaders outside of the traditional classroom.

The Leadership Seminar has been an outreach ministry of Manhattan Christian College since 2006. Each one is designed to provide practical information on current and future ministry issues facing today’s church leaders. The low registration price makes it possible for multiple people from the same congregation or ministry staff to attend together, i.e. lead pastors, elders, Sunday School teachers, church staff, and any ministry leader who relies on volunteers.
