Based on Simon Sinek’s book, Find Your Why, this workshop focuses on discovering the ultimate reason that a church exists. Some churches exist to provide care, others to feed the poor. Some focus on international mission, others on neighborhood outreach. Whatever God’s reason for the existence of a particular church in a particular location in a particular time, it is imperative to discover that purpose and then to organize everything else around it. Frederick Buechner wrote: “The place God calls you to is the place where your deep gladness and the world’s deep hunger meet.” The same is true with the “why” of a congregation. This experience is deeply satisfying as congregations realize how active the Spirit of God among them, and as they work to discern their calling.
