STEPPING UP TO NEW CHALLENGES
YOUR COMMITMENT TO SERVE OTHERS IS WHAT MAKES THE DIFFERENCE
Church members often take on roles and responsibilities they feel less than fully prepared to handle. This happens especially once the leader gets to work and finds previously unidentified and unmet needs. If you or someone in your congregation fits this description, this coaching cohort can provide meaningful support.
In six group sessions led by Senior Coach and long-time congregational lay leader John Burnham, you’ll explore issues that you and others face as lay leaders and finish each session with tools you can put to immediate use.
Session topics will include:
Effective communications within and beyond your area of responsibility;
The power of making direct requests in engaging others;
How to run a meeting that’s different because “this is church”;
Working with your pastor and developing a stronger, more effective relationship;
Managing money and matters of church policy;
Clarity of purpose and why you volunteered in the first place.
