“Traction Tracks” are specific training/resourcing/coaching/implementation components developed within West Ohio’s Missional Church Consultation Initiative (MCCI), now available in individual short courses for churches of any size and setting.
Does your congregation need to gain a new specific aspect of traction in order to begin moving forward into renewed vitality? Consider which of these next Traction Track offerings might be right for you. Every Traction Track involves your pastor plus a team from your church. Click on any of these links to find out more, and to register online. All start in August or September.
Breakthrough Prayer Initiative (one session training)
Every new movement of church renewal always begins through prayer, asking God to bring new possibilities and hope. Learn how to lay a foundation of churchwide prayer that will move your congregation from looking down and in, to up and out! Choose any one of these three identical Traction Track single sessions:
Saturday, August 19: Host location Trinity UMC, Upper Arlington (CAN district)
Sunday afternoon, August 20: Host location Bainbridge UMC, Bainbridge (SHV district)
Sunday afternoon, October 22: Host location Trinity UMC, Grove City (CAS district)
Family Ties (four-session training)
Family Ties teaches churches how to rethink and intentionally change your current approach to reach and disciple new children and families at home, in church and within your local community. Connect anew with the next generation! Learn more here.
Creating a Social Media Strategy for Your Church (two-session training)
It's important to use social media on behalf of your church - it's where the people are! Learn how to establish a consistent and positive social media presence to generate maximum impact with minimal investment of time and money. Learn more here.
Streamline Your Church's Administrative Structure (single info/intro sessions)
Explore the possibility of transitioning to a more nimble and streamlined church administrative structure, in order to get decisions made more quickly, plus move people out of spending so much time in committee meetings - thus freeing them to serve in ministry. Attend any one of four one-hour overview info sessions to help you discern whether this would be a positive step for your congregation. If you then decide you'd like to move ahead, you can register later for the full Traction Track to train, guide and help you implement this shift over the next six months. Learn more here.
