Strengthening the Existing Network for Ministerial Support and Resourcing

Tuesday, November 6th 2018
12:00-1:30 PM

ABC-WI Regional Office
15330 Watertown Plank Rd., Elm Grove

(Video-conference and phone options available for those who cannot join in person. Please see below for information on how to join via video conference.)

This collegial luncheon will focus on naming and exploring sources and supporters that assist in fostering healthy and effective ministers – both those within and beyond the ABC-WI constituency.

Some of the questions & issues we will be examining are:

  • In what areas do ministers in our region feel they need support?
  • What sources/supports are currently meeting these needs?
  • What needs are currently not being met, and what resources are available to meet those needs?

Our goal will be to clarify network strategies moving forward as we seek to resource and support ABC/WI ministers.

RSVP to sean.cornell@abcofwi.org by Monday, Nov. 5 at 10:00 AM to help with lunch count. Please mention any food restrictions.

To prepare for our conversations, consider these “Network Principles” that will guide us as collaboratively work to strengthen our common network around for the mission of “fostering healthy and effective ministers.

Four Network Principles
(provided by American Baptist Home Mission Societies)

1. Mission, not organization: Advancing the mission takes priority over advancing the organization. Leaders adopt strategies and tactics to achieve the mission, not solely to stimulate organizational growth.
2. Trust, not control. Trust and shared values are far more important than formal control mechanisms such as contracts or accountability systems.
3. Humility, not brand. Organizations work alongside their peers as equals and willingly take a backseat when their partners are in a better position to lead.
4. Node, not hub. Those who embrace the network mindset see their organizations as one part of a larger web of activity directed toward a cause, not as the hub of the action.
