Have you used MissionInsite for your congregation, yet? Would you like to learn more about ways to get the best information out of the tool? What about taking the next step, and creating or reshaping ministry around the data from MissionInsite and community listening? We invite you to learn at the feet of a master, Tom Bandy, who has a depth of knowledge about MissionInsite and expertise in using it to help congregations think strategically.
Tom Bandy is an internationally recognized consultant, conference speaker, and leadership coach for Christian organizations and faith-based non-profits. He is widely respected for his unique ability to understand diverse cultures, traditions, and denominational polities; and his grasp of systemic change and congregational mission. Denominational, congregational, and non-profit leaders appreciate his ability to discern truth, clarify options, and guide leaders for spiritual growth and mission impact. Tom listens, teaches, and empowers leaders to follow Christ faithfully in a world of change. You won’t want to miss this opportunity!
To better prepare you for this training, we recommend that you sign up for MissionInsite for your congregation. Explore the information provided and compare it with the common assumptions about your community. Familiarize yourself with your congregation’s mission and how your ministries align with or support that mission. For books by Thomas G. Bandy, consider these three: Strategic Thinking: How to Sustain Effective Ministry; Spiritual Leadership; and See, Know, and Serve the People within your Reach.
This ministry workshop has been provided to the Conference by the Congregational Development Corporation, thanks to your apportionment giving.
