    The Workshop Series

    Few, if any, institutions are more difficult to lead through a meaningful transition than the local church. For years, guiding a congregation to change has been a noble, but largely optional endeavor. That’s no longer the case. We are in a state of permanent transition, and absent effective organizational leadership, the odds of surviving, let alone thriving, are not in our favor. But as pastoral leaders in this new reality, there are trustworthy charts that can help navigate the choppy waters of change.

    This workshop will paint a picture of the healthy change process that will give you and your church the best chance for success. Questions we will address include, how do we identify the realities that create the need for change and the forces that work for and against it?  What is the difference between innovation and adaptation, and why does it matter?  What do the three stages of healthy change look like, and why is the order so important?  How do you handle the inevitable corporate anxiety (and yours)? Is resistance a threat or necessary part the process? How patient do you need to be, or can you afford to be? What two personality types can you absolutely not allow to set the agenda? How can you help create a culture that isn’t afraid of change, and might even get good at it?  And more.

He previously led FBC Monroe, Georgia and FBC St. Petersburg, Florida through seasons of significant change. He earned his doctorate in pastoral leadership from Princeton Theological Seminary, and feels his best gift is leading churches to grow and change without blowing things up.
