Our Approach

Our approach to church consulting combines the best of contemporary leadership theory (Appreciative Inquiry) with Christian discernment practices (in the Ignatian tradition). We utilize a process with three different goals:

  • Discover the realities and challenges of ministry today, and remember and claim the heritage of your church
  • Discern God’s call to ministry for your church today
  • Define ways to bring that call to fruition

For most churches, the place to start is our Vision & Mission Workshop. The work that we do together in this workshop creates a new foundation for ministry!

We do offer other workshops, and even custom leadership training and team building.

For clergy, staff, and lay leadership, we offer customized workshops on implementing change, dealing with conflict, and more. Often, these workshops serve as follow-ups to the Vision & Mission Workshop.
