100% of Pastors Will Stop Pastoring at Some Point

On April 21-22, Auxano will be leading a Pastoral Succession Boot Camp in Phoenix, AZ. Churches can bring up to five team members for this groundbreaking, full two-day learning experience that will be ministry shaping and a tool-rich environment.

Pastoral Succession Boot Camp

Mountain Park Church

Tuesday, April 21 and Wednesday, April 22

9 a.m. – 4 p.m. each day

$1,995 per church (up to 5 team members)

The Succession Boot Camp equips ministry leaders to implement a healthy, wholistic, and effective succession planning strategy. During the two-day workshop, your team will evaluate:

– Four Continuity Factors – In total, your team will assess 23 key organizational areas. The goal of the initial assessment process is to predict the areas that will most likely cause disruption during the transition process. Naming these areas in advance minimizes the likelihood they will cause significant harm.

– Three Process Pathways – There are three primary pathways leaders and churches will use to navigate transition. We will assess key reasons why each is selected and traps to avoid in their implementation. The goal is to follow the pathway that best fits your unique situation.

– Five Essential Signposts – There are five key areas that need to be accounted for as you manage transition. Churches that fail to account for one or more of these areas tend to struggle with the implementation of their transition plan. Knowing these five areas will help ensure a more effective process.

The Boot Camp includes:

  • Two full days of training with your team (9 a.m. – 4 p.m.)
  • Pastoral Succession Workbook for each team member
  • Customized Pastoral Succession Implementation Plan for your church
  • Training tools for your team
  • Lunches and breaks throughout the Boot Camp
  • One virtual coaching follow-up session for your church

Transportation, lodging, breakfast, and evening meals are NOT included

100% of Boot Camp fee is refundable through March 31, 2020. 25% is non-refundable after April 1, 2020.

Facilitators

Mike Gammill has created a collaborative learning environment that will introduce practical tools designed to help your team effectively steward a season of Pastoral Succession.

And remember, succession planning isn’t the last great thing a leader does. It is the gateway to a leader’s greatest season of influence!

Guest Connection Matrix

We’re always trying to practically equip church leaders with tools and processes to help them activate their church’s unique vision. Bryan Rose and Bob Adams have been working on a new tool you can use to train your welcome teams in the process of connecting first-timers to become church family. Bryan walks through the tool in the 3-minute video linked below.

The video is short and practical and we think you’re really going to find it helpful!

You can watch it here.

As Bryan mentions, this tool is a new addition to our Guest Experience Boot Camp. Bring your team of five to sunny South Florida for a deep dive into welcoming guests well! Find out more here.

How to Design an Exceptional Guest Experience

Did you know that a first time guest will typically decide to come back in the first 11 minutes of visiting your church? And yet, we spend very little time thinking about how to shape those first few minutes in a powerful way, much less the rest of their time with us.

The fact of the matter is that defining moments shape our lives, but we don’t have to wait for them to happen.

We can be the author of them.

In today’s increasingly fast-paced and unpredictable environment, church leaders need to be involved in design thinking more than ever. Design is all about action, and churches too often get stuck at the talking stage.

Face it – despite all our planning and analyzing and controlling, the typical church’s track record at translating its rhetoric into results is not impressive.

Moments matter. And what an opportunity we miss when we leave them to chance!

  • All it takes is a bit of insight and forethought.
  • All it takes is for you to think like a designer.

Auxano’s Guest Experience Boot Camp will help you and your team do just that.

 

Here’s what some past participants have said:

  • I loved all the content.  It was made even more meaningful as we spent a chunk of time working on a personal plan for our church. Thank you for building that time in.
  • The content was killer. Can’t wait to process it all when I go back home. I loved how you gave us time to design it in the moment with our team.

  • My team used the information we learned to actually plan out the improvements of our church’s guest experience.

  • We loved the process of learning some new principles and paradigms and the opportunity to apply them to our context in teams.

The Guest Experience Boot Camp will introduce your team to developing powerful moments through design thinking…

…because Designing Guest Experiences is more important than delivering guest services.

 

Check out Auxano’s Guest Experience Boot Camp in Cincinnati, OH on August 7-8.

How to Achieve Break-Thru with Your Team

What if two days with your team could change the trajectory of your church? 

You are invited to an exclusive gathering limited to 25 church teams at three different cities around an important break-thru topic. Each topic is a critical factor in reaching and discipling people for real church growth. Keep in mind this is not a conference! It is a workshop + coaching process to bring permanent change to the performance of your ministry. That’s what Auxano is all about: deep and lasting culture change based on your vision. It’s Auxano’s Boot Camp Series.

Boot Camp Topics and Locations

  • Pastoral Succession – TBD
  • Guest Experience – Newport Beach, CA – January 29-30, 2019
  • Capital Campaign – TBD

The Story Behind the Boot Camp

For the last 16 years Auxano has developed an amazing toolbox in key areas for every church that goes through our vision process such as a guest perspective evaluation, a leadership pipeline build-out, and a pastoral succession roadmap. Now, we are bringing those insights, tools and how-to’s to church leaders whether you are going through a vision process or not. Each topic is built on a history of team facilitation and best practices from leading churches of every faith tribe and every size.

Each Boot Camp Features

  • 2-days of training with two master trainers
  • Transferable tools for immediate application in the Fall
  • Follow-up coaching for feedback and implementation support
  • A notebook with how-to templates and examples from model churches
  • A memory-making team experience that makes growing your church fun
