Let’s be honest; there are times when one-on-one guidance, encouragement and accountability brings out the best in us and accelerates our ability to chase down those big, audacious dreams. The Generis Coaching experience is designed to align with your greatest needs and is delivered over a period of time that makes the most sense for you.
Ministry is more fun when you don’t do it alone! A Collective is a virtual peer-to-peer experience where you will journey through a specific set of ideas or challenges for a period of 3-6 weeks. It’s a great way to break through those occasional logjams. And, if you’re not quite sure you’re ready for one-on-one coaching, this is a great way to test the waters.
There are seasons in every church where a team needs to go heads down and implement a new strategy or solve a pressing problem. In a Ministry Strategy engagement, one or more of our leaders will help you uncover the right solutions for the season you’re in. They will also walk alongside to help you execute with greater speed and effectiveness. Journeys like these are highly tailored to your unique church mission, culture and people.
One of the challenges of multisite is that it adds new layers of complexity and strain on leaders that are already operating at full capacity. It’s like Jim Gaffigan describes having five children, “It’s like you are drowning and someone throws you a kid.” This is where we can help you. Rather than simply adding more tasks to everyone’s to do list or adding staff before you are ready, churches often bring in a Multisite Specialist to help them develop the key processes and systems of adding, overseeing and growing campuses. Our team can help shoulder the burden of these new tasks, and have done it multiple times before.
