Some of my Projects

Upper New York Promise Team

This project was designed as a leadership incubator for clergy from across Upper New York who have shown great potential within their local churches. Before SLI, many of these clergy were hungry for a new way of leading, to take the next step in churches by developing team based ministry. They were feeling stuck and overwhelmed by the responsibilities of managing church. Overall there was a sense of frustration and being discouraged. When the team first gathered they were introduced to SLI's principles of creating environments that foster experimentation and team development. You could see each of their eyes light up with excitement as they imagined these principles being lived out in their churches. Throughout our year together, they were taught how to build teams, develop discipleship systems, and design ministry action plans. The clergy have reported that this process has had a huge impact on their leadership. They have been able to increase their productivity and begin building new ministries to reach new people. This has allowed them to experience not only personal growth in their leadership but also growth in their churches leadership and commitment to its mission.
