Membership Culture To Discipleship Culture

Attractional Church To Missional Church

Consumer Church To Covenant Church

Sometimes mental paradigms and cognitive understanding of what’s happening lags on-the-ground experience. We post-modern Christ-followers realize that something has changed. Our experience tells us so. Our intuition and feelings tell us so. Yet our understanding of what’s happening in congregations, and to congregations, often is the last to learn. The purpose of SHIFT is to help our understanding catch up with our experience. We need input, insights, information, and examples to make sense of the changes around us. SHIFT provides this kind of learning for clergy, church staff, and lay persons. SHIFT can be engaged the following Formats:

  • One Day Learning Experience
  • Two-Three Day Workshop Learning Experience
  • Weekend Retreat
  • Three Learning Modules Spread Over Time
