Great to catch up with Salvation Army Officers in Northern Tasmania for our regular morning cluster session this week.

On Tuesday the Churches of Christ Vic Tas church health consultancy team explored dimensions of local church and leadership vision. Michael anchored our reflection theologically helping us reflect on the task of listening to God for direction. We looked a several facilitation techniques for uncovering or surfacing vision and values. Michelle, one of our team members, shared something of her experience consulting in the area of strategic planning.
