Appreciative Inquiry for Vestries and Church Leaders

June 10 @ 9:30 am - 3:30 pm

What did Jesus Come for?

Was it to give us less death or was it to give us life?

While the answer may be obvious in reality most of our church and social programs focus on having less death, or less of what we don’t want.

In this program you will learn how to discover and grow what is life-giving to you and the communities in which you live.


Costs: $50 per person

Lunch is available for additional $10.


Who Should Attend

This program would be ideal for Vestry members and church leaders of:

Churches wanting to discover and grow their purpose and mission.

Churches in transition and are seeking new Rectors.

Churches that need to embrace the future rather than run from the past.

Churches that want to grow in the love and joy of being Children of God.


In this program you will:

Learn the essentials of appreciative inquiry.

Learn how to ensure change is a sustainable blessing and not a curse.

Discover appreciative strategies for dealing with problems.

Get some new ideas about stewardship and fund raising.
