PURPOSE OF THIS EVENT
To spend time focused exclusively on the congregation as an institution
• How to see it
• How to create a more relational culture
• How to dis-organize and re-organize it fundamentally
 
WHO IS THIS FOR?
Professional & Religious Members of Metro IAF congregations
PREPARATION AND STANDARDS - email to: Julie.Rowley@metro-iaf.org
1) Each participating congregation is asked to prepare a simple, brief profile of the congregation:
  • Number of members
  • Pattern of growth or decline over past ten years
  • How many key leaders with followings?
2) Each congregation should indicate:
  • How many individual meetings per week does the clergy leader do?
  • How many individual meetings per week do the top leaders do?
  • How much training of leaders is done (and what content is used)?
  • What is the identity of the congregation (how does it see itself and describe itself)?
  • What new constituencies (if any) is the congregation reaching out to?
  • What major strengths or gaps exist in the congregation? (A brief description – two paragraphs or so)
3) Why is the leadership interested in attending this workshop/clinic?
4) What kind of internal dis-organizing and re-organizing has been attempted in recent years? And what were the outcomes?
