Congregational Champions Retreat 002 Was a Great Time of Dialogue

CCR002 GroupThe second of seven Congregational Champions Retreats to be held this fall finished on Thursday, September 15th. Here are the seven participants plus me from five denominations, and five states plus Canada. It was extremely enjoyable to have them in our home. We had some great dialogue. We ran out of time, so I will seek to adjust the content so we are not rushed, and are able to complete the agenda.

The goal is to download what I have learned about helping congregations become vital and vibrant, and journey in the direction of their full Kingdom potential. It is not that what I have learned is perfect, the best, or the only good approach to serving as a third-party provider to congregations. It is that over 40 years I have learned many things, had many insights, and thought long-term about the spiritual and strategic approaches that make a significant different in the ability of congregations to soar with faith.

I do not want to hoard this knowledge. I want to share it to accelerate the learning of others, and so they might go farther than I have in increasing the faithfulness, effectiveness, and innovation of congregations. Would you like to be one of these? Would you like to meet with me in our home? [You will lodge elsewhere.] If so, go to for more information, or contact me at
