“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed [people] can change the world. Indeed, it's the only thing that ever has.” - Margaret Mead

When Jesus began His ministry, He immediately formed a small group. Following in the footsteps of Jesus, we are continuing to offer opportunities to gather in small groups for discussion and empowerment around the prominent topics swirling in the crucible of change for us as faith leaders.

A majority of this hour will be spent in breakout rooms with conversations facilitated by our ELCA Coaches focused on:
Growing Young
Grief and Loss
Rural Ministry
Urban Ministry
Hybrid Church
Race Relations
Leadership Development

Like each of you, we are learning as we go and will continue to edit topics based on interest and feedback.

We are inviting you to bring a spirit of curiosity to these gatherings and to all aspects of your life. What are you noticing? Where is Spirit moving? How are you being invited to participate?

Join us WEEKLY on Wednesdays at 1pm Central to hear from a variety of leaders. We will continue with our theme of COURAGEOUS LEADERSHIP. There will be time for small groups in breakout rooms so that leaders across the church can learn from each other and leave each gathering with at least one action step.

Based on continuing feedback, we will continue innovating, lean even more into coaching, and begin something different starting in August. Stay tuned for those details. Same day of the week (Wednesdays), same time (1-2pm Central), same login link, updated framing and formatting.
