When you’re ready to launch the next season of your church, it is wise to form a Change Leadership Team that will identify appropriate changes for your church. The team should be led by your Senior Pastor and would ideally include 4-6 key staff members and/or key volunteers who are open to new ideas and who have trusted influence in your church. The timeframe for the Change Leadership Team to determine, propose, and begin to implement agreed upon changes typically ranges from 3-12 months.
HERE ARE SOME WAYS WE CAN HELP YOU (AND/OR YOUR CHANGE LEADERSHIP TEAM) TO CREATE YOUR CHURCH’S PERSONALIZED CHANGE ROADMAP:
“SUNDAYS AT AMPLIFY” VISION TRIP
Schedule a personalized Vision Trip/Field Trip to a Sunday morning worship service at the Pittsburgh East campus of Amplify Church in Pittsburgh to inspire new ideas and jump-start your journey. We will roll out the red carpet for up to ten (10) people from your church for a “behind the scenes” look at one of our weekend experiences. You can join the pre-service meeting for volunteers at 9 AM and then experience either the 10 AM worship service, or spend time observing a specific area of interest (children’s ministry, middle school ministry, welcome team, tech team, etc.) Then we will host you for a one-hour lunch at 11:30 AM and answer your questions.
THE CHANGE ROADMAP WORKSHOP
Attend the 4-hour Change Roadmap Workshop with your Change Leadership Team at the Pittsburgh East campus of Amplify Church on October 1, 2019 from 10 AM - 3 PM (lunch included). This pre-Future Forward Conference workshop will focus on your how you can develop and implement a Change Roadmap with specific actions that will take your church to the next level, including actions that will fully engage the next generation. This workshop will be an encouragement and inspiration to you whether you are just starting to put your Change Roadmap together or you have already started to implement your plan. One bonus is that you will be able to compare notes and ideas with other churches on a similar journey.
ON-SITE OR VIDEO CONFERENCE COACHING
Arrange for a face-to-face meeting at your church or a video conference with a Future Forward Coach. Using the Change Roadmap as a framework for the discussion, your Future Forward Coach will help you or your Change Leadership Team to think through ways that your church can effectively plan and implement desired changes, including changes that will enable your church to more effectively engage the next generation. A Future Forward Coach can also serve as a sounding board for the Senior Pastor during the most crucial months of decision-making and change implementation. One option to consider is the 12-Month Coaching Partnership.
