These forums are the engine room of Living Stones. They draw senior leaders and ministry leaders together, enabling the sharing of best practice and the exploring of our biggest ministry challenges. Each forum will explore questions that have been raised beforehand, with input from experienced leaders as well as time for discussion and sharing as participants learn from one another.
SENIOR LEADERS FORUM
The Senior Leaders Forum is a two day "locker room" hosted in one of the churches in the Living Stones Network. Whereas the Refuel Mentoring Retreat is about soul care and connecting with one another in a relaxing environment, the Senior Leaders Forum is an energetic talk-fest, sharing best practices and exploring ministry challenges together. This forum also gives an opportunity for Senior Leaders to discuss future training opportunities within the network.
MINISTRY LEADERS FORUM
The Ministry Leaders Forum is an event that brings together paid staff and ministry leaders in similar roles to share best practices, discuss challenges and connect together. In 2019, we will be offering six forums, running two concurrently over three seperate days, spread out across the year. Next year we will be hosting at two locations The Street Church, Wellington and Botanylife Community Church (Kotahi Community Centre) in Auckland where each ministry group will explore questions that have been raised beforehand, with input from an experienced Ministry Leader as well as discussion and sharing as participants learn from one another.
