London Conference is one of 13 Conferences within The United Church of Canada serving a broad geographical region that encompasses all of Southwestern Ontario and Algoma Region.
Looking for something?
London Conference in Partnership with Edge is seeking 3‐4 congregations to participate in a pilot project to support congregations to:
- clarify their vision of mission (exploring examples of exciting emerging ministry, using data driven tools to assess missional gifts in the congregation and opportunities in the community, establishing the spiritual practices that will ground the work in God);
- articulate their mission goals (as per the Effective Leadership project)
- Make it happen! (developing partnerships/collaborations that will support, the leadership practices that will empower, the measurement and adaptive tools that will sustain the ministry)
The pilot project will take approximately 8 weeks to complete and is planned to happen right away, through April to June of this year (2014). We are looking for congregations that are willing to engage the change this moment demands and that can bring some focus to this process over the next couple of months. A cluster of congregations open to collaborations of various kinds would be very welcome.
The pilot will be utilizing the new Identity, Mission and Needs Assessment (IMNA) survey developed specifically for United Church congregations by Edge with Jane Armstrong Research Associates.
- Completed requirements of the Effective Leadership project
- Renewed energy and hope
- Revitalized and sustainable ministry
