The coronavirus crisis poses huge challenges to our churches and ministries. While we may initially have planned for a few weeks of disruption, we also need to consider what would need to change for our congregations to thrive in radically different conditions for a much longer period. Taking this longer-term view also gives us an unparalleled opportunity for creative leadership. Andy Crouch, partner for theology and culture at Praxis, will present central concepts from the March 20th article, “Leading Beyond the Blizzard: Why Every Organization Is Now a Startup.” Over 100,000 people have read and forwarded this article from the senior leadership team of Praxis, a Christian organization which works with entrepreneurs in the nonprofit and for-profit sectors. Andy will present the reasons to expect that this crisis will not end quickly, why we need to shift our mindset from “waiting it out” to actively planning for a new kind of ministry and work, and the hope that this could be a moment of significant renewal for the church in its mission in the world.
Following the presentation there will be time allocated for a question and answer session.
