Pastors are doing too much, the congregation is doing too little, and the work of the local church feels unsustainable. Some of this has become more apparent because of the global pandemic and the tumultuous events of the past year. Some of this has been a problem for much longer.
How do we invite congregants to more fully engage in the local church?
Join author, professor, and executive coach Courtney Davis as she addresses the problems of declining service to the church on behalf of congregants, how to build volunteer teams within your church, and how to retain those volunteers for the long haul. She will share models of leadership development for congregants that are necessary and sustainable for our local churches.
