It was good to share the day with church consultants from both Teams A and B with the Churches of Christ Conference of Vic Tas. We looked at facilitation techniques and skills for working in churches and debriefed a number of current consultancies. Enjoyed our second last day of this training program.
All the notes are now in the course dropbox.
For the last workshop in our introduction to the areas of specialisation in Church Consultancy, we looked at Vision and Strategic Planning consultancies. Some time was spent on understanding the theology and spirituality of listening to God in the context of visioning. We explored processes of assisting churches to surface their vision and to engage in strategic planning processes. As usual notes are our DropBox. A highlight of the day was hearing Rev Ian Duncum outline his findings from his D.Min. research on the effectiveness of this model of consultancy on 10 Baptist Churches in NSW.
