Dig Down: An invitation to explore presents a 10-step process for thinking theologically, exploring governance and staffing, and maximizing resources. This Guide is designed for deep thinking, evaluation, and action.
The Dig Down guide includes:
- step by step timeline for the Dig Down Process
- detailed explanations for each of the ten steps
- training activities
- Bible studies
- questions for listening and reflection
- and more
When done well, the Dig Down Process will empower a congregation to make changes to the systems currently in place that are needed in order to move forward in mission.
LEAD offers resources, training, and coaching to help congregations successfully move through the process. You can learn more here.
