Welcoming Dr. Bandy Back to Iliff!

We are excited to be able to host Dr. Tom Bandy at Iliff! Tom is an internationally recognized author, consultant, and leadership coach for Christian organizations and faith-based non-profits. He mentors and coaches diverse church and non-profit leaders for personal growth, program development, and organizational sustainability. Widely published, he brings a wealth of information that can benefit organizations of all sizes, denominations, and locales. He also works closely with www.MissionInsite.com, developing resources to interpret lifestyle expectations for ministries.

To provide maximum value and flexibility for participants, we are offering four distinct seminars across two days, each with different topics.


Wednesday, 8:00 am – Noon:

Bringing Shalom to a Polarized Congregation

Sideline Church by Thomas G. Bandy

We will explore how different demographic change and cultural diversity influence values systems and religious practices. Build reconciliation by deepening empathy rather than debating policy. Learn how to find bridge-builders who generate conversations between factions, and how to equip staff and lay leaders to honor dissenting voices within and beyond the congregation.

This workshop is based on Tom’s latest book, Sideline Church: Bridging the Chasm between Churches and Communities (Abingdon). 

 


Wednesday, 1:00 pm – 5:00 pm:

Really Relevant Clergy: Choosing the Leader Most Effective for the Mission

Spiritual Leadership by Thomas G. Bandy

We will explore why distinct groups of people gravitate toward different kinds of leaders, and study the eight different kinds of spiritual leadership in America today. The reach and depth of your church depends on the right kind of leader for your community. Learn how the right leader can build credibility in the community; and anticipate the stress over leadership expectations as your church grows and becomes more demographically diverse.

This workshop is based on Tom’s recent book, Spiritual Leadership: Why Leaders Lead and Who Seekers Follow (Abingdon).

 


Thursday, 8:00 am – Noon:

How to Use MissionInsite for Strategic Planning

Strategic Thinking by Thomas G. Bandy

We will explore how regional and local church leaders use MissionInsite to adjust and focus the “Sunday Morning Experience” of hospitality, worship, and education; initiate and sustain small groups and outreach; renovate and support facilities and stewardship; and improve inward and outward communication. Learn how to navigate the new MissionInsite platform. Overcome the stress of change and count the cost of multiplying disciples.

This workshop is based on Tom’s earlier book Strategic Thinking: How to Sustain Effective Ministry (Abingdon).


Thursday, 1:00 pm – 5:00 pm:

Personal Religion: Understanding the Fastest Growing Religious Movement in America

Sideline Church by Thomas G. Bandy

We will explore how “Personal Religion” is transforming both mainstream and evangelical churches, and growing the ranks of spiritual people with no interest in religious affiliations. Discover the positive and negative impacts of personal spiritualties on communities and churches, and how churches can faithfully adapt message and method to build conversations rather than confrontations.  Anticipate the seismic changes that will transform the institutions of the church in the decade to come.

Based on Tom’s latest book Sideline Church: Bridging the Chasm between Churches and Communities (Abingdon)
