The Center for Parish Development in Chicago is the primary source for the Missional Transformation Process being used by congregations in the Iowa Conference. The Center is an ecumenical, missional, research, consulting, and teaching agency founded in 1968 by a consortium of mission agencies, theological seminaries, and regional church bodies.
Staff at the Center have worked with thousands of church leaders over these many years to further the mission of the church universal. Many of their resources can be found online at http://www.missionalchurch.org/resources/transforming.html.
In addition, read this brochure for highlights of the process we are using with local churches of the Iowa Conference.
