Clarifying Your Church's Identity (Convergence Leadership Project)
Convening Around a Strong Center
Many congregations have no clear sense of who they are or why they’re here. They continue by inertia and habit. How could your congregation create a strong identity that would attract new people and activate your current members? How can you begin to define your identity by a dynamic way of life rather than a static system of beliefs, list of rituals, or piece of real estate? In this eight-week intensive, you’ll rethink your identity and develop a plan for helping your conversation discover a new way of being, seeing, living, and loving.
