The Institute of Congregational Development

Creating a Culture of Permanent Growth

November 12 - 14, 2019 
9:00 AM - 4:00 PM
Verone: Sugar River 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.
In an effort to provide training reflective of planting experiences with more missional approaches, we offer a year-long process for planters and their teams called Launchpad. These events mark the beginning of the process. During training planter leaders and their teams will sketch out ministry plans for the next nine months, considering both attractional and missional ministry elements. Subjects covered will include theology and call, affinity groups, vision-casting, best practices, community networking, bonding with the mission field, fund-raising, self and family care, and how to hold effective meetings one-on-one or with a group.
Registration: $30.00 collected at the event. Please have a check or exact amount in cash. Registration Deadline: November 5, 2019
