In cooperation with mid council leaders across the PCUSA, NEXT Church has curated several beneficial resources for church leaders.

 

Winter Workshop Burst

Five timely topics for church leaders based on feedback we have received from individual conversations concerning the needs on the ground:

It’s only $29/person for all sessions or $25/person for each session. Our hope is that this low cost will provide access to as many leaders as possible.

 

Preaching for Change

We received a Lilly Grant to support our initiative, Preaching for Change, and are excited to launch our pilot program in 2024. Cohorts can be composed of leadership within a congregation or colleagues with a common goal. All participants will engage with our resources (Cultivated Ministry and Crossroads video series), receive 1:1 and group coaching quarterly, and attend the 2024 National Gathering.

From April 8-11, 2024 we will gather in Falls Church, VA to move the needle in our contexts. Participants will engage with practitioners and coaches in one of six different areas:

      • Community Organizing
      • Building Community Partnerships
      • Intersectionality/Embodying Welcome
      • Identity and Coalition Building for People of Color
      • The Preaching Moment
      • Leading Change
