6. Host a Workshop
My passion is to foster personal and congregational creativity, to guide great ideas to sustainable innovation and change, and to help the church communicate the gospel more effectively through a culture of creativity and storytelling.
Innovation that leads to growth and vitality can happen in a variety of settings: strategic thinking, leadership, worship and arts, communication, mission, discipleship, and more. But the foundation is the same. A key to vitality is to move yourself and others from consumption, where we are conformed to patterns of decline, to creativity, where we are transformed by our God-given impulse and calling to make things new.
I am passionate about helping your church discover how creative thinking can increase congregational vitality. Contact me for workshop ideas and details.
