Churchnet Conducts Congregational Leadership Sessions

Churchnet is currently in the fifth year of a five-year strategic plan called First Priority 2015.  The plan was focused on helping the network more effectively serve churches.  The Churchnet Board of Directors has approved a strategic planning process designed to allow the Churchnet leadership to take a fresh look at our state and our ministry.  We are seeking God's direction for the future of our collaborative ministry.  We are exploring God's will for our work for the next five years.  During the coming months a Strategy Planning Leadership Team will be conducting a series of Congregational Leadership Sessions with staff members and church leaders in congregations across our state.  Bob Dale, author of To Dream Again and a congregational health consultant, is serving as a consultant and resource person for the strategy planning process.

In October an online Leadership Survey will be available on our website to provide an opportunity for church leaders to share their insight and thoughts.  The Congregational Leadership Sessions and Leadership Surveys will provide the data and information needed to allow the Strategy Planning Leadership Team to have a better understanding of the needs and current reality in the congregations in our state.  Our goal is to discern how we can most effectively serve these congregations as they seek to carry out their mission and ministry.  You are invited to join us praying for this process.  If you have suggestions or questions you may send them to or call us at (888) 420-2426.  We welcome your insights and suggestions.
