Sign up for September Church Transformation Leadership Institute in Missouri

August 19, 2010

Churches are dying all over the country. Have you seen this happen? Is there anything sadder than seeing a church slowly dying for years and then having to close its doors for good?

If you've experienced this first hand or seen it happen in your area, you undoubtedly realize that unless our shrinking churches transform now into growing, vibrant congregations, we will see more of them die on our watch. But how? Are you searching for a comprehensive process?
If so, sign up to attend the Church Transformation Leadership Institute, September 14-16 in Missouri. The Missouri Annual Conference of the United Methodist Church has created and implemented a comprehensive church transformation process that is bearing fruit – creating real transformation in the churches in that Conference. And the leaders there want to share the process with you!
The event includes:
  • Featured Speaker: Bob Farr, Director of Congregational Excellence for the Missouri Annual Conference
  • Tools critical for local church development
    o Judicatory strategies required to set the pace
    o Pasoral and lay leadership development
    o Peer mentoring and pastoral coaching
    o Pre-consultation steps and process
    o Consultation weekend at a church
    o Post-consultation steps, including: vision development, accountability leadership, community connections, and church coaching
    o A comprehensive manual and CD to assist you with implementation
