Welcome to the Thriving Congregations Leadership Module.
As we move from claiming your church’s picture of THRIVING from the Book of Acts, to benchmarking where your church currently finds itself (SURVEY RESULTS) to planning and innovation later in 2021, we have 2 foundational LEARNING modules that will get us ready for that planning and innovation. The first is focused on Leadership, and the second is on Relationships. The Leadership Module consists of 4 conversations—which you and your team can cover in 2 one hour meetings. We suggest that your team watch/read the content ahead of time, and use the time together to reflect and discuss.
Session One: 1. Watch Leadership is Listening video. Use the discussion questions from p.3 in the Adaptive Leadership PDF to process what you saw.
2. Read the Adaptive Leadership/Canoeing the Mountains PDF. Use the discussion questions on p 16 and 43.
Session Two: 3. Watch the Leadership is FOCUS video. Use the discussion questions on p.44 of the PDF to process with your team.
4. Watch the Leadership is Taking the First Small Step. Use the discussion questions on p.45 of the PDF to process with your team.
