Community needs can sometimes feel overwhelming. Your congregation wants to help, but may be discouraged from tackling the biggest challenges because you feel alone, and your assets seem meager in comparison to the task. Author, futurist and missional leadership strategist Dave Rahn wants to encourage you to believe you can make a real difference through collaboration.

This live online workshop harvests Rahn’s extensive experience to explore best practices in collaboration strategies. He will offer you a pathway to become catalytic contributors on behalf of your community. You will be drawn into God’s vision for hope, healing and unity. Communities change when everyone works together.

We all encounter those who are grieving. Whether it’s those in our congregation or those in our community. Grief is challenging, because we often don’t feel equipped to support those in the midst of it.
