A Story from the LEAD Journey

Be alert, be present. I’m about to do something brand-new.
    It’s bursting out! Don’t you see it? Isaiah 43:19 The Message

While the world around us shifts and changes, our call to be the church remains a constant. How do we honor that steadfast call to be the church and remain relevant in an ever-changing world? It starts by listening and connecting with our congregation, our neighbors, and our community. Congregations find that the LEAD Journey equips them for those conversations and changes both the way they have conversations and the topics they cover.

Calvary Lutheran Church in Grand Forks, ND, started their LEAD Journey this past Fall. In the video, Pastor Ivy Schulz shares about what their journey has been like so far and how it’s changing the conversations they are having about their call to be the church.

The LEAD Journey is a 3-year transformational process that starts with pastors and lay leaders working together to deepen their faith and grow their congregation’s understanding of and capacity for mission. LEAD offers a high-commitment, deep-results experience that works with congregations across the country in any context – all online.
