Do You Need To:
This Appreciative Inquiry based program is a natural follow-on from our Introduction to Appreciative Inquiry. The focus of this program is to apply the introductory appreciative inquiry information specifically to the work of congregational development.
This program would be helpful to any clergy wanting to engage in congregational development and especially to those starting a new ministry or congregational consultants.
All Sustainable Change is an Inside Job
Development plans that are inflicted upon people rarely succeed or are sustainable, regardless of the merits of the plan. In the incarnation Jesus did not come and inflict salvation on us he came and lived as one of us. In this training program appreciative strategies will be provided to help leaders discover and incarnationally join congregations at their life-giving core and then from this God-given place co-create with the parishioners their preferred future.
Some of the training topics will include:
This program is built on the core understanding of Appreciative Inquiry and is open to those who have completed the Clergy Leadership Institute Appreciative Inquiry training.

This program qualifies for 15 contact hours of continuing education credit.
