Canoeing The Mountains Facebook


A new ABCOPAD Facebook Page:

Following the online course "Life Lessons From The Lewis and Clark Expedition," a new ABCOPAD Facebook page has been established to provide opportunity for both clergy and laity to discuss topics of congregational life in a changing culture. It is an open forum, emerging from a study of "Canoeing the Mountains: Christian Leadership in Uncharted Territory" by Tod Bolsinger.

You are welcome to share how your congregation is "going off map." How your congregation is building small groups. How your leadership teams are working through conflict. How your congregation is meeting the challenges of a changing culture.

You can join the conversation HERE.

Explorers Lewis and Clark had to adapt. While they had prepared to find a waterway to the Pacific Ocean, instead they found themselves in the Rocky Mountains. You too may feel that you are leading in a cultural context you were not expecting. You may even feel that your training holds you back more often than it carries you along. Drawing from his extensive experience as a pastor and consultant, Tod Bolsinger brings decades of expertise in guiding churches and organizations through uncharted territory. He offers a combination of illuminating insights and practical tools to help you reimagine what effective leadership looks like in our rapidly changing world. If you're going to scale the mountains of ministry, you need to leave behind canoes and find new navigational tools.
