Model Presentations

Here are three presentations I developed for a class at the Church Divinity School of the Pacific in fall 2015. These cover models we teach in the College for Congregational Development which are helpful for thinking about the dynamics of church life.

(Note: student comments are removed and the presentations are locked to further comments.)

Two Models: Group Dynamics and Conflict (handouts here and here)

Two Models: Congregational Life Cycle and Congregational Size (handouts here and here)

The Core Purpose of a Congregation: Gather, Transform, Send (handout here)
