The annual meeting for United Methodist Transitional/intentional Interim Ministry Specialists Association.
TIIMSA GATHERING 2015
April 28-30, 2015
St. Andrew United Methodist Church
9203 S. University Blvd.
Highlands Ranch, Colorado
Keynote speaker: Dr Craig Gilliam on "Conflict Transformation."
I will be doing the following workshop on Thursday morning:
Fire and Ice: How clarity of vision can save your church from the daily apocalypse.
Sometimes we face conflict, sometimes we battle apathy; this workshop provides tools for transcending both the urgency of immediate issues and the heartbreak of an unenthusiastic laity. Our Wesleyan heritage had two key visions which raised the early Methodist gatherings above the religious muddle of their day. The same vectors can clarify leadership roles, build spiritual passion, and reconnect people with transformative mission in the community. We will consider both the strategic ideas needed for healthy church growth and the management insights needed for sustainable ministry.
