2018 SPRING UPDATE

Date: Tuesday, March 6, 2018                                                                                  Time:  8:30 A.M. to 3:30 P.M.                                                                                    Location:  First Presbyterian Church, Fort Worth                                                                Cost: $40

Morning Topic:
The First Town Hall Meeting: Creating Focus Point Startups
Leader:  Dr. Lynn Eckeberger

Learn to guide a Transition Team in using an initial, and interactive, Town Hall event (Church Family Forum, Clear-the-Air Meeting, etc.) to map out a Focus Point strategy: discovering the church’s issues and planning how to address them.  Participants will walk away with an enhanced approach to the Town Hall meeting, a strategic process of letting the church conversation drive the entire IIM experience, a tool kit needed to accomplish the tasks, and a variety of techniques to address the tight turns and subtle twists of the IIM process.

Afternoon Topic:
Relational Leadership
Leader:  Brad Riza, Col. Chaplain USAF (ret.), LPC

Brad hit a home run when he led us in processing the Anger Map a few years ago.  He returns with a set of tools to build team cohesion and function.  The tools are applicable to transition teams, multi-staff ministry teams, etc. We’ll look at personal needs and the role they play in leadership and church relationships.  Then, we will look at the actual elements of leadership you can use, grouped under the headings of:  Grow Self, Grow Others, and Grow the Ministry.  You’ll receive two short assessments to fill out before the training (bring with you), so we can jump right into applications when we’re together.  Included will be a personal growth plan you may use in the future.  Brad has a proven track record as a DOM, and interim pastor, of successfully using this material with church staffs.
