Turn Around Boot Camp - Winston-Salem, NC

Over the past several decades many congregations have become inward focused and experienced numerical decline, sometimes at an alarming rate. 

In this weekend workshop, congregational teams (pastor + church leaders) will learn how to turn around this trend and reach new people by aligning themselves with their mission field.

This "how to" workshop includes:

The significant & strategic differences between 1955 and today

Identifying & prioritizing the mission field around the church and how to reach it

Re-Introducing the notion of the pastor as recruiter of new people

How to reallocate 20% of the pastors time to network and recruit new people

The congregation's role in reaching new people

Each team will develop an Action Plan to take home with them

Ongoing support is available by participating in a “Coaching Cluster” facilitated by Griffith Coaching.

In the process of moving from inward to outward, participants will gain confidence that they can reach new people for Christ and turn around their church.

$300 for team of 4-9 people (limit 10/team) – Pastor must attend
