You are a visionary leader and your church probably has a vision statement.
Yet most churches are stuck in a trap of generic communication without a visionary plan. Just like a restaurant needs a more specific focus than "serving food," a church needs something more than biblical generalizations like "loving God, loving people" or "making disciples who make disciples.”
Based on more than 10,000 hours of church team facilitation, Auxano’s God Dreams Horizon Storyline tool reveals a simple and powerful planning method that will bring energy and focus to your church like never before. The God Dreams Workshop is your first step to leading a better future. .7 CEU's will be offered - Please continue to watch the website and your email for updated information.
