Strategic Planning for Christian Organizations: Turning the Power of Vision Into Effective Ministry
Facilitator: Valerie Ross
The path of strategic planning for any organization, regardless of its size, begins with a Vision: what is your hope, your dream? The second component is the Mission:Why does our organization exist? What is our purpose and are we meeting a need? Until those fundamental questions are answered and agreed upon by the organizations constituents change can not be realized. This workshop is designed to provide you with the tools to effectively move through the situational analysis of the strategic planning process to experience progress.

Cultivating Generous People
Facilitators: Sharon Matsuyama and David Popham
The target of an annual stewardship drive is typically funds for the church budget. However, as Christian communities of faith ours is less about the church budget (as important as that is) and more about the cultivating of people who lead lives of generosity. As D. Heenan and W. Bennis note, “Generosity is grounded in a profound understanding that we all are in this together… It is only in fruitful alliances with others that we can do great things.” In this presentation you will learn how Year Round Stewardship cultivates an attitude and expectation of generosity.
Tuesday, May 23, 6:00 - 7:30 PM
Living in Age of Leadership Burnout
Facilitator: Jonathan Roach Church leaders are burning out: pastors, treasurers, Sunday school teachers, moderators, deacons, and on and on. We have a leadership crisis. This workshop will empower us to develop a faith-based theology of work to provide a resource for ourselves and those in ministry with us that moves beyond simple reminders for self-care. Self-care is critical but no matter how much self-care we practice, if we are don't change how we approach and live out our work, we will burnout again and again. Learn how to understand your own burnout and how to talk to others about their burnout. Be prepared to engage scripture, history, social science research, spiritual disciplines, and the arts.
