Join authors and coaches Jason Moore and Rosario Picardo for a 5 session training that will expose you to numerous case studies, implementable ideas for congregations of every type and hands on conversation to help you walk away with an action plan. This training is best experienced as a team, so bring a group!

Session 1: Assessing the Why | WORKSHOP RECORDING

This first session will center on two major questions. We’ll start by emphasizing the importance of determining your why and will discuss the perils of not knowing what it is. We’ll give you the tools to define your why so that you can create a lasting recipe.

Session 2: Assessing the Relationship Between the Old and New | WORKSHOP RECORDING

In session 2, we’ll discuss how to build a lasting and happier relationship between the existing entity (worship service/campus/etc) and what you’re building (new service, new campus, new expression of church). You’ll learn how to create a covenant agreement that establishes a shared understanding of all that will take place in the construction of your new recipe.
