Exploring the Future of Faith
We provide leaders of faith-based communities and organizations the knowledge, skills, and resources they need to help their communities and organizations survive and thrive in in the midst of an increasingly uncertain and rapidly changing world by becoming lean, agile, and experimental.
We offer leader coaching, consulting for communities and organizations in transition, conferences and workshops, books and assessment instruments, research on the future of the church, and an online community of practice.
We focus on equipping leaders to practice what we call Vision-Guided Experimentation, seven practices which that help leaders balance a healthy respect for time-tested tradition with a capacity for creative experimentation.
