Resources for Strengthening Congregations

Congregations are diverse collections of people, often united only by a shared faith. Blending personalities, politics, commitments, perspectives on life and perhaps even different interpretations of core faith doctrines can be challenging for both the membership and its leaders. Key challenges include creating opportunities to safely share and hear differences, finding ways to identify and build upon commonalities and learning to see diversity as a strength that can move a congregation into powerful ministries that might be missed if conformity and uniformity were overemphasized. The Congregational Resource Guide hosts an extensive collection of resource materials, supportive websites and links to consultant services that can help your congregation discover its hidden, shared spiritual calling.
