TN12 covers the final part of the kind of training events I run on managing change in churches. It consists of 15 practical ideas if you want help in how to ease a church congregation or organisation's staff through a process of change.  Here are some sample headings from the list.

  • Keep God's Kingdom as the focus
  • Never lose sight of the destination
  • Listen to feedback at every stage
  • Try an experimental period
  • Model the new setting
  • Let people say good-bye to the old
  • Admit when you get something wrong.
