Shifting Leadership: Shifting From Management to Mission:
The world is in constant change but our need for God is not. Ministry in a changed, and constantly changing, mission field requires learning new ways rather than getting better at old ways. Being efficient at what we do is not the same as learning to be effective at what the mission field needs.
To make these distinctions requires us to look again at the changed mission field and culture that surrounds us. However, living in a shared global world that is increasingly complex and diverse while also in a specific local world that is unique to the individual church that it surrounds means that there are no "standard answers" anymore.In such a setting leadership must start with learning rather than doing. Our time together will explore some of the fundamentals of the change that we are facing and will pay particular attention to leadership of our congregations. Understanding the nature of systems, the need for clear outcomes, and the leadership role of conversations as a tool of discernment will be the primary focus of our learning.
