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.

What is the Convergence Leadership Project?
The Convergence Leadership Project (CLP) is an online, on-demand continuing education program for clergy and laity who want to strengthen their church while preparing them for the cultural changes that impact ministry. We work together to build a church that is deeply aligned and moving forward on a path of just, joyful, generous, and regenerative Christian faith. A church that is welcoming in new people and younger generations to become spiritual activists to care for the planet, seek justice for the poor, welcome vulnerable people, and work for peace across racial, religious, political, and cultural divides. CLP provides self-guided intensives to equip and inspire you and your congregation to be long-term contributors in a vital spiritual movement taking shape around the world. CLP. Participants are eligible to receive a Certificate in Convergence Leadership with the purchase and successful completion of the full online course package. We know that today’s political and social reality needs a new kind of faith leader. The Convergence Leadership Project (CLP) trains congregational leaders, lay and ordained, as spiritual activists in a growing, multi-denominational movement of just and generous Christianity. When you join, you will be part of a growing regional and national movement of contemplative Christian activism that spans denominations and traditions.
