Event Description

How do you move your faith community from simply agreeing that work matters to actually integrating it into regular practice?  

Change of this magnitude doesn’t happen overnight. People need to be repeatedly exposed to the biblical threads over a sustained period of time. Your role as a current—or future—pastor or ministry leader is to nurture theological thinking that more robustly aligns with faith and work integration.

Join us for this online session to hear how one pastor is laying a solid foundation of long-term solutions for his congregation. Find out how to diagnose and assess your congregation’s mindset, develop a prescriptive plan for change, and work through some practical tools to get real results.

We’ll consider these key questions:

  • Where is my congregation theologically?
  • How can I connect with them where they are?
  • How can I influence their thinking?
