For the Common Good

Retreats for Creating Engaged and Effective Churches, Staff, Councils, Boards, Vestries, Sessions, and Committees

Happy PeopleWhen you’re working well together, nothing can stop you! When you’re not on the same page, it seems that nothing can motivate you.

Frustration, stagnation, and personality conflicts prevail.

Then, your mission as the Church suffers.

How can you work together more effectively for the common good?

By understanding yourself and others better, so that you can bring out the best in each other. Then, you can get back to the real business of making disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world!

This was the most insightful, empowering and productive two-day church-sponsored event in my 60 years of participating in numerous programs!

 Loved the interaction with both clergy and laity!

 This is one of the most helpful things I’ve attended in my 14 years of ministry.  I believe it will be transformative both for me personally and for the congregation I serve.  It will help me make a good place even better!  Thank you!!

 I wish I’d had this when I began ministry!
