About the Fruitful collaborative ministry and mission – a team to sow and a team to reap course
In recent years collaborative ministry has become a well-founded ambition for many churches and church leaders. However, might some of our approaches to collaborative ministry not actually deliver this in practice?
This session will explore theological and organisational foundations for collaborative ministry, how this can be set as both a characteristic of a ministry team and an approach to enabling the life of a church in mission. The day will be practically focussed, with an exploration the reality of collaborative leading through different models and perspectives on leadership. At the end of the time participants will have a devised a clear action plan for their context.
This session will be suitable for those with responsibility for collaborative teams as well as those who are members of them.
