Track 3 – Culture Shift

Are you leading with a bold vision?  

100% of church decline is due to lack of an empowering and inspiring vision.  Learn how to expand assumptions about what is possible, gain buy-in, carry a vision through to completion and watch your church culture shift.  Guided by Jesus’ own example of ministry, refine your vision, gain alignment and champion execution of a new Kingdom-inspired goal.  

HIW

  • Confidently engage your people to motivate them in new direction of ministry!

  • Reconnect your congregation with the spiritual values of the Gospel including outreach to the community, ministry to the poor, and making new disciples of Jesus Christ.
  • Transform a risk-averse culture into a congregation willing to dream like Jesus, enthusiastically tackling new initiatives and launching new ministries.
