Church Leadership Resource Group: Gather-Transform-Send

May 19, 6:00 pm7:30 pm


New in 2022, our Church Leadership Resource Group will meet every other month to share ideas and tools for leading your congregation. This group is open to all parish leaders: staff, clergy, wardens, vestry members, and other volunteers.

The next session on Thursday, May 19th, 6:00-7:30 p.m., will explore a congregational development model called “Gather-Transform-Send.” This model proposes that the primary task of a Christian congregation can be described this way: “The unique purpose and work of a congregation is to gather those called by God into Christ’s body, the Church—a community of transformation of mind, heart, and action—and to send these same people into the world both to be and to act as God’s loving and transforming presence.”

Coming up in the Church Leadership Resource Group

Here’s what we’ve got planned for upcoming sessions of the Church Leadership Resource Group: 

September 29th: Benedictine Life

The elements described in St. Benedict’s Rule provide a framework for approaching the spiritual life of both individuals and communities. 

November 17th: Life Cycle of an Organization/ Life Cycle of a Ministry

All organizations have a beginning, middle, and end. We’ll teach a model that will invite us to look at where our ministries are in the natural life cycle of an organization/ministry and dig into the formation questions that can help lead us into times of healthy stability. 

January 26, 2023:  The Power of Congregational Interviews 

One purpose of doing congregational interviews is to help understand how people are experiencing your congregation. Congregational interviews have also proven to help build trust and relationships in our parishes.
