Holy Shift: Innovation and Our Story

Oct 20
Holy Shift: Innovation and Our Story

What is the future of Church in the 21st century and how do we tell the story of our faith in this context?

Holy Shift is a dynamic learning conference for congregation members, staff and clergy to share ideas, connect and dream about the unfolding of Spirit in their communities. Held in Parksville at Knox United on Oct 20-22, this year’s event features Beth Ann Estock, author of Weird Church: Welcome to the 21st Century, and Kelli Walker-Jones, author of Know Your Story and Lead with It: The Power of Narrative in Clergy Leadership. Beth Ann’s book meshes spiral dynamics with analysis and examples of new expressions of faith communities in the 21st century. A must-read for anyone daring to innovate!

Knowing your story is an essential component of effective leadership, but finding your story among the myriad narratives that fill your life isn’t a simple task. Kelli Walker-Jones offers a path to finding your own story amid the powerful family and cultural narratives that may be obscuring your vision. Her work as a minister and educator at Duke Divinity has led her to show leaders how to explore their story of reality, tell it to other group members, and consider how it can be used as a resource for leadership.

Other workshops will include: Right relationships- working with First Nations communities, Adaptive leadership, Building your discipleship programs, Church plants and intentional Christian communities, and more!
