accelerate your path to engagement

Virtual Strategy Lab

The Path to an Engaged Church Should Not Be Taken Alone

Some say knowledge is power. It isn’t. Knowledge/data/information is all around us, right at our fingertips. As leaders we have unprecedented access to knowledge in a variety of forms. But that unlimited access to more information doesn’t give us power; the ability to understand and make informed decisions does.

As you continue on a journey to become a more engaged church through the use of data, analytics, and actionable insights, you need a guide to help you process knowledge and information so that it can be applied across the 5 jobs for every church (Attract, Get, Keep, Grow, & Multiply). That’s why we built the Virtual Strategy Lab.

The 12-week Virtual Strategy Lab is designed to help churches like yours take a strategic leap forward in an area of critical need. This collaborative, peer-centered experience is designed to help your team:

  • Gain clarity on the problem you’re solving or the opportunity you’re leveraging.
  • Connect with other leaders and teams asking similar questions.
  • Get access to experts and models you can learn from.
  • Map out next steps to accelerate progress and multiply Kingdom impact.

Helping You Move from Insights to Action

The Virtual Strategy Lab provides a roadmap for your team to use your data, analytics, and actionable insights to explore new ideas that will lead to Kingdom impact. The experience is broken down into four phases:

WEEKS 1 - 3

PHASE 1 - Clarity

“A problem well-defined is half-solved.”
- Charles Kettering

The more clearly your team understands the problem you are solving and what a ‘win’ looks like, the better prepared you will be to take meaningful action.

WEEKS 4 - 6

PHASE 2 - CHANGE

“Winning brings advantages that make it easier to keep winning.”
- Rosabeth Kanter

A healthy strategy will also advantage of “low-hanging fruit” while also planning for
high-effort or
high-impact projects.

WEEKS 7 - 9

PHASE 3 - CONTINUITY

“Great things are done by a series of small things brought together.”
- Vincent Van Gough

Innovation comes through continuously thinking in short cycles. What data and insights are you gathering that will lead to breakthrough ideas?

WEEKS 10 - 12

PHASE 4 - CULTURE

“Culture eats strategy for breakfast.”
- Peter Drucker

Leaders need a simple, yet strategic framework for shaping culture that creates an environment conducive to long- lasting, effective change.
