A 90-minute Presbyterian Outlook webinar
Tuesday, January 20, 2015 – 2 p.m. ET (11 a.m. PT)
featuring John Wimberly
There are many things that drive the life of a congregation. Some of them pull a congregation’s leadership in different, even competing, directions: different theological positions; unique program demands from various generations; varying preferences regarding worship style. The best way to process the differing demands is to be clear about the purpose of the congregation.
Does the congregation exist for the welfare of its members, to pull in the unchurched, to promote mission to the marginalized, to care for the needs of the aging boomer population… or what?
This webinar will help participants understand how they can begin a conversation in their congregations that leads to clarity of purpose. With clarity of purpose achieved, congregational leadership has a defining filter through which decisions must flow.
- Learn why clarity of purpose is essential for effective ministry;
- Hear about planning processes that can be used to achieve clarity of purpose; and
- Be given resources to learn more about the subject matter.
