Seminar teaches leadership
By Holly Snead
The second Fathering Group
Leader Seminar of the semester
was directed by Dr. Michael
O'Donncll Friday and Saturday
Ten men representing nine con-
gregations attended the two-day
seminar to learn how to direct
fathering groups explained
O'Donncll associate professor of
home economics and family stud-
ies and director of the Southwest
Center for Fathering.
The seminar offered "more spe-
cialized training for the more spiri-
tually mature" said O'Donncll.
"We have a time of prayer and
praise to focus on our relationship
to Jesus Christ" said O'Donncll.
"We affirm that he is the answer."
O'Donncll said that to be a suc-
cessful father a man must first
have Jesus in his life and depend
on God. The seminar began with
such a focus in order to establish
the spiritual basis from which
O'Donncll presents his material.
Harold Lipford director of cam-
pus events provides spiritual
encouragement to O'Donncll and
the men attending the scmindr
through his prayers.
"He comes and he's there basi-
cally just to pray" said O'Donnqll.
"He is lifting up the leaders by
name and is lifting up me while
The men arc also led in "experi-
ential learning" through small
group activities said O'Donncll
"They process the content thai
they're learning ... they each take a
tum simulating an actual class for
fathers and making presentations'
Videos arc also used "to get
them really connected with their
own fathers" he said. One such
video "The Prodigal Son" shows
a father reconciling with his son.
"You can't be a father Until y
first become a son" he said.
Viewing videos helps "bring o
the forefront the raw emotions of
the men present it's a bonding
experience" he added.
the Southwest Center fofj
Fathcrinc is trvirte to conduct oriif
seminar each month O'Donncll
said. In November a seminar Will
be held at David Lipscomb'
University and O'Donncll will
