“Path to Membership”
Leadership Development Training
Congregational growth is most easily measured in numbers – a tangible representation of how many of us there are and how we are supporting the mission and vision of the congregation. In some congregations, the decision to become a “member” is a milestone representing an individual or family passage from “visitor” to finding a more permanent place in the community. As our understanding of membership as an indicator of growth changes, many congregations are redefining membership as more of a continuing journey than a single endpoint. Congregations are finding success by creating a path that helps newcomers deepen their faith, connect relationally and grow their leadership capacity. This workshop will introduce a process to create a path that will guide individuals and families from their first visit to greater connection and engagement within the community.
