Starting


As your team moves from the “Discernment” to the “Starting” stage there are a mixture of feelings. It might be excitement and it may be apprehension. This stage does not automatically start with a worship component but involves experimentation and getting to know the community that you feel led to work within.

By the end of this stage you will have experimented and given structure to the vision for the new worshiping community that was only a concept before. Remember you are not on this walk alone.

Team Summit

Team dynamics, communication, and vision are critical in developing of a New Worshiping Community. This one or two day event will help teams better work together, articulate a common vision, and implement the plan.


The ACADEMY: Starting Track and Sustaining Track

Our leadership development weeks are designed to walk alongside both developing and maturing New Worshiping Communities. Each individual week will build upon itself in areas of evangelism, discipleship, funds development, and help leaders connect with the resources of PCUSA.


Regional Gathering

Regional Gatherings are designed to foster growth and motivate those exploring innovative ministries. This one day event across the country brings together those that are already involved in developing communities with those that have a theological framework to continue to prepare, equip, and sustain leaders.

 
 

Online Resources

OUR ONLINE RESOURCES PROVIDE AN ADDITIONAL WAY TO LEARN AND BE ENCOURAGED.


Cohorts

We are starting multiple cohorts of New Worshiping Community leaders. We have geographically-based and topical cohorts forming. Most will meet online once/month, but the groups can determine what is best for them. Our 1001 team will also have a quarterly training online for all cohort members to expand their competencies as leaders, based on the topics you want to focus on.


Videos

Our team has developed a series of videos that highlight New Worshiping Communities in a variety of stages of development. The videos also include conversations with leaders about areas of interest.
