Energize Your Church Through Listening

In these times of stress and uncertainty, it is often difficult for churches to maintain current levels of activity, let alone plan ahead. A period of intentional, prayerful listening in the congregation may provide the boost you need.

This hour-long webinar session offers a practical guide to a range of listening activities, including focus groups, interviews, and table talks. When people know that their voice is valued, they are more likely to get involved. Discover gifts, encourage connections, and envision possibilities that can release new energy for engagement.

This free webinar, led by Joy Skjegstad and Heidi Unruh, brings together learning and practical action steps that can be put into practice right away. Both of our presenters have experience in the local church and nonprofits as consultants, coaches, and leaders. If you’re looking to gain tools that you can use to deepen your congregation’s engagement in ways that deepen discipleship and move out into the community to build relationships and make a difference, this webinar will be one that you won’t want to miss.
