Have you ever said, “Someday soon I’ll focus on _____?” If so, then you know that someday always seems to be just around the corner. It’s hard to find the time to address the one or two issues that could launch your church or ministry to the next level. Would you be willing to devote one day to tackle your church’s biggest need? That’s the purpose of the OneDay Experience. It’s a fast-paced, highly interactive workshop that is ideal for a leadership team or board retreat.

Choose OneDay instead of someday.
What kind of OneDay Experience is right for you?
- OneDay priorities. Designed to help you choose a few great opportunities from among many good ones. This workshop emphasizes the importance of focus and the development of action-oriented plans.
- OneDay breakthroughs. An in-depth, problem-solving experience focused on a single issue. This workshop enables a leadership team to examine and thoroughly understand the issue and agree on an approach to address it.
- OneDay team-building. If your biggest challenges are “silos” or a lack of healthy interaction among your key leaders, this workshop is structured to help your staff learn how to work together as a team.
- OneDay governance. Designed to help the ministry’s governing body (board, elders, council) clarify its role, improve interactions with each other, and foster strong relationships with the staff.
What is included in the OneDay Experience?
- Preparation: preliminary phone call(s) to clarify the objectives and to plan the workshop; collection of data (done by the church/ministry staff).
- Workshop: an engaging, full-day experience for the leadership team, concluding with clear, action-oriented next steps.
- Follow-up: a memo with observations and recommendations; then a check-up call about 2 months after the workshop.
What else do you need to know?
- The OneDay Experience is designed for churches and ministries that are clear about their vision and that are not in conflict. It is very difficult to have a productive workshop and to create meaningful action plans in a single day if this is not the case.
- This is not a visioning or strategic planning process.
- The OneDay Experience will conclude with specific next steps, but detailed action plans are developed by the staff in the weeks after the workshop.
