While enjoying the leverage created in the first round of The Loop, you would find out it is not easy to lead the whole ministry team in the following rounds. That is a great sign. It is growing pains! Leading a gang of culturally competent leadership is a difficult job. It will be more difficult if they are passionate and motivated. This job demands the role of a professional manager. It is no wonder why those commercial sectors invest a vast amount of financial resources in such a profession. They are the ones who create harmony, direction, and synergy out of your ministry team. When you dare to work with community connectors for the Kingdom’s work, the community organizing pastor should become a professional coach. We have a year-long program for executive ministry coach certification. We have also prepared tools and training sessions to play a moderator role from the second round of The Loop. The moderator’s role is to create a safe collaboration space in which the team can come to make a sound decision for the sake of your community.
Human thinking is unstructured and reinforced so that different types of thoughts can drive individuals and groups to think in unorganized ways. I’ve seen many meetings and discussions led to unexpected results. How do you allow a range of different viewpoints and perspectives to be brought into your development? It is why moderation is an art of work! One of the tools you can use during your team meeting is Six Thinking Hats. The thinking process guides your ministry team to follow specific directions and allows you to moderate the flow of your team discussion productively. You will practice setting an agenda, defining processes and objectives that drive the thinking process forward, collating all the ideas, opinions, and information presented by all the thinking hats, and structuring an action plan for solving the problem.
We also provide you with various templates that can be directly used in your ministry development. They are available in an interactive pdf, including SWOT Analysis, Narrative of Concern and a Preferred Emerging Story, Systemic Narrative Thickening Analysis, Process Loop, Problem ABCD Evaluation, Persona, Context Analysis, Focus Group Shadowing and interviewing, Impact and Effort Matrix Analysis, Ministry Value Proposition and Mapping, Critical Action Plan, Compelling Reasons to Join Analysis, Messages and Channels, Experience Map, Hidden Assumption Analysis, and more.
Furthermore, we will provide training on creating online forms, landing pages, and email campaigns, and how to utilize the Website platform, Church Online Platform, Email Campaign platform, Online Conference platform, Online Learning Management platform, Online Interactive Learning platform, Online Broadcasting System platform, etc.
