in Faith Communities

Learn More

The World Café

Gathered around tables in groups of 4, in conversation about important questions, capturing a visual harvest of images and words.

Open Space

Creating a marketplace of conversations options hosted by participants. Staying with a single conversation or moving about like bees cross-pollinating conversations.

Dyads and Triads

Timed conversations in groups of 2 or 3, listening intently and reflecting back what has been heard. Deeping relationships, discovering new ways of thinking and being.

Circle Practice

Being in circle, in equality where every voice matters. Sharing the roles of hosting, moderating and harvesting.

New Program!

Faith Community


This is your invitation to explore a process with up to 10 other faith communities for a self-directed process for participatory planning and renewal. Community of faith leaders meet together over three days to develop their program, then meet online over the following year to continue learning together and sharing their innovation stories. Contact us to find out when the next program begins.
