The 5 Moves
Shaping congregational life around the mission of God is a journey. With decades of experience working with pastors and congregations, we continue to see how critical these 5 Moves are for churches learning to participate in God's mission.
Become aware by uncovering the language, words and feelings that your people are using to express where you all are now.
Understand where there is energy and hope and where there might be possibilities to shift what you are doing.
In light of your fresh understanding, evaluate what you are doing in your church and in the broader community.
Out of the work of evaluating, create simple experiments to respond to what Jesus is revealing to you.
Reflect on your new learning. Name and commit to new rhythms and practices.
Get started with the critical work of building Awareness.
Engage with practical grounded resources that provide you with a way forward.
Be resourced to step into critical leadership practices
Leaders orient people to God that they might join God in making things new where they live.
