This week, we will be conducting interviews for future episodes of the #WesleyCast with three outstanding United Methodist leaders:
Grant Hagiya is Bishop of the Greater Northwest Area of the United Methodist Church and author of Spiritual Kaizen. Prior to being elected Bishop, he was appointed as the Executive Director of the Center for Leadership Excellence, a joint position between the California-Pacific Annual Conference and the Claremont School of Theology, where he served as the Director of Leadership for the annual conference and a faculty member at the Claremont School of Theology.
Elaine Heath is a Professor at SMU’s Perkins School of Theology, United Methodist elder, and the author of numerous books on evangelism and mission. She is a sought-after speaker and is a leading voice for and active leader in Wesleyan missional communities, particularly through her role as co-founder and Executive Director of the Missional Wisdom Foundation.
Steven Manskar is a clergy member of the Minnesota Conference of The United Methodist Church and currently serves the General Board of Discipleship as Director of Wesleyan Leadership. Steven writes and leads workshops and seminars on Covenant Discipleship groups, Small Group Ministry in the Wesleyan Tradition, and Wesleyan leadership, theology and practice. He leads two annual events: The Wesley Pilgrimage in England and Wesleyan Leadership Conference.
