9:00 am - 12:00 pm
Want to meet members of other Greater Philly Cluster congregations? Want to learn more about how to develop a “Path to Membership” in your congregation?
This workshop will introduce a process to create a path that will guide individuals and families from their first visit to greater connection and engagement within your church community.
FREE EVENT. All are welcome.
Congregational growth is most easily measured in numbers – a tangible representation of how many of us there are and how we are supporting the mission and vision of the congregation. In some congregations, the decision to become a “member” is a milestone representing an individual or family passage from “visitor” to finding a more permanent place in the community. As our understanding of membership as an indicator of growth changes, many congregations are redefining membership as more of a continuing journey than a single endpoint. Congregations are finding success by creating a path that helps newcomers deepen their faith, connect relationally and grow their leadership capacity. This workshop will introduce a process to create a path that will guide individuals and families from their first visit to greater connection and engagement within the community.
