The Institute of Congregational Development

Creating a Culture of Permanent Growth

 "First Twelve"
July 9 - 10, 2019 
9:00 AM - 12:30 PM
Tomah: First UMC 
The Institute of Congregational Development is a comprehensive, year-long leadership development opportunity for those leaders ready to take their ministry to the next level.
Over the course of the last three years, participants have learned from prominent pastors, authors, coaches, and consultants from across the nation. ICD participants are contextualizing what they have learned and applying the information to their own unique settings.
This year, the New Ministries Strategy Board and the office of Congregational Development will be offering four follow up events to graduates of ICD. These training events are also open to other clergy and laity with passion for starting new ministries. The trainers will be provided by Discipleship Ministries and Path 1.
This first session is intended to include all graduates from the ICD program. Regardless of your current ministry situation, your participation would be highly valued. We will take time to get reacquainted and seek your valuable input on the strengths and weaknesses of the ICD program. Knowing how this program did or didn’t impact your ministry is vital to helping us improve the effectiveness of this program.
Participants will learn how to take ownership of their personal talents and strengths as they discern which Church Planting Strategy is best for their unique ministry context and their unique blend of talents and strengths. The participants should leave with an appreciation of their Clifton Strengths and an action plan to discern the best church planting strategies for their ministry context.
"First Twelve"
The first 12 people to join you starting a new ministry, new church, or new faith community will set the tone and shape for the future, set the pattern for replicating leadership, and begin a cascade of invitation. Finding those first twelve is key to growth. “First 12” is a two-day training designed to help you gather and grow the first 12 committed, core people. In this training, combined with a year of practical coaching follow-up, you will learn the skills, habits, and lifestyle practices that will give your new vision the best chance of launching with a team of 12 committed leaders. “First 12” is also valuable for leaders of existing faith communities who want to start new small groups, new fellowship, new mission outreach, new worship services or new gatherings.
