Congregations thrive when lay and professional leaders lead as partners, and a fruitful partnership requires clear understandings about how decisions will be made.
This event offers specific process congregations can use to design and test new ways of decision making. It helps leaders to build boards that delegate effectively, demand high performance, require sound stewardship, and reflect continually on mission and purpose at board meetings and in wider gatherings. It supports a purpose-driven work environment for clergy, staff and volunteers, so that they enjoy appropriate autonomy and space for creative work.
Critical Conversations: Leadership, Governance and Ministry is a workshop that will help ministers, boards and councils make a positive impact on your congregations’ governance and ministry. Facilitated by Dan Hotchkiss, formerly with the Alban Institute, is a nationally known consultant in this area. We invite you to come as individuals or register your entire Board/Council and your minister to be part of this amazing training Event!
Cost: $25 (incl. lunch), Congregations of five or more: $100
