Climbing the Assimalayas Gathering Jan 14-15, 2016
To all my partners in "the climb",
As I respond to your calls and inquires about connecting people to your church, each other, and to God, I believe it is now strategic for us to assemble to bring these discussions to concrete results for your assimilation ministries. I will be hosting a gathering in sunny Southern California (not quite Himalayan weather but it'll do) in the heart of January-the 14th & 15th to be exact.
Once you are here, we will:
Go through a process of identifying vulnerabilities in each church's assimilation process
identify next steps in eliminating those vulnerabilities
Design new processes to move toward a 1 out of 3 assimilation success rate
Share best practices
Hear what I am learning about how to use every kind of person (including non-believers, children & teens, and those whose lives need a face lift of some kind) as a volunteer!
Learn about some new strategic shifts at Eastside in how we launch small groups and make Christ Followers.
How we address the issues surrounding sexual orientation and assimilation.
Make resources available to effectively implement any changes in Spring of 2016 and beyond.
Our Volunteer Director Julie Liem will also be assisting me in this effort.
Where: Eastside Christian Church, Anaheim California
When: Thursday and Friday January 14-15, 2016
Cost: $149 ($159 after Dec 18th)
Mark your calendars and an online registration will follow with more details and surprises to come.
Looking forward to a valuable time of development of each other and our ministries!
