Overview of the Training
Join us in Orlando, FL for an experiential learning event that flows from a theology that places Christ and His purposes at the center of genuine revitalization. This training is designed to equip interim pastors, denominational leaders, and anyone else interested in helping churches in some kind of transition or crisis. During this three-day event, participants will discover strategies to diagnose real problems, facilitate change, resolve conflict, manage destructive powerbrokers, and deal with the idols at the root of many congregational issues. You will be exposed to a flexible and workable model of church governance, the use of transition teams, and a proven method for strategic planning.
* Space is limited as we intentionally keep the training group size small to ensure productive networking opportunities with attendees and presenters.
