Sustaining While Disrupting


Learn ways to sustain tradition while guiding fresh initiatives and addressing unfamiliar issues.

Many churches today find it difficult to adjust to changing circumstances. Traditional models of leadership are not working for new and unfamiliar issues.

For many congregational leaders, preserving cherished traditions while discerning God’s new thing is a challenge. Trying to innovate to address a changing context and culture can take a backseat to daily responsibilities and maintaining ongoing ministries. This webinar recording offers insights and practices to help leaders navigate this impasse in ways that do not become an either/or situation.
