Registration fee $35
In this interactive workshop, you’ll be guided through the Innovation Lab’s five-phase Theological Innovation Process as a pathway for designing creative and transformative ministries in your unique context.
We’ll apply the innovation process to a case study of a challenge facing people nationwide – the epidemic of loneliness in America. Together we’ll brainstorm innovative ministries that could address this challenge in a theologically-grounded way. You’ll learn a new framework for developing ministries that authentically meet the needs and engage the assets of people in your own community. You’ll also receive a resource you can use to develop transformative ministries in the future.

In 2 Kings 4:1-7, the prophet Elisha meets a widow and her two young children who are in a desperate situation. Instead of making assumptions or telling them what HE thought they needed, he LISTENED. By doing so, the entire community was able to see their surroundings in a whole new way and lives were transformed.
Does your ministry start with listening? In this interactive workshop, we will help you reimagine how you develop new ministries by listening deeply, cultivating curiosity, and examining your surroundings through new lenses. You’ll also receive our community interviews resource so you can immediately begin asking thoughtful questions and listening to the people in your ministry context.
