Designing Oct 2021_web banner (1000)

What ministry is God calling us to do now?

What ministries are we no longer able to do?

What will our resources look like in the coming year?

If you are asking questions like these about the future life and ministry of your congregation, join Presbytery of the James and Virginia Synod, Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, to learn the tools of “design thinking.” Used in a variety of industries to solve problems, design thinking focuses on the target audience. Applied in the congregational setting, design thinking will help you imagine, create, and implement ministries that matter now.

Pastors and congregational leaders welcome.

MaryAnn is a writer, pastor, speaker, and ministry coach. The author of “God, Improv, and the Art of Living” and “Sabbath in the Suburbs,” she is sought after for her perspective on leadership, faith formation, and congregational transformation. Learn more here.
