Diocesan congregational development staff and the Episcopal Church Foundation hope to launch a pilot program that focuses on an alternative way of thinking about strategic planning. The idea is that as parishes plan strategically, they need to be flexible and have the ability to change course quickly in response to changing circumstances. The hope is to gather several parish teams who are looking to challenge their congregations. By working together with the consultant, it would reduce overall costs for the Episcopal Church Foundation's services and encourage congregations with similar sets of issues to support and learn from one another as they do their work.
For those who would like to learn more, this introductory workshop with two representatives from the Episcopal Church Foundation, Donald Romanik and Erin Weber-Johnson, will be offered. There is no cost for the workshop, and lunch will be provided.
Please note the location change to the Church of the Advent.
