Association of Interim Ministers (AIM) Annual Conference
“Predicting – and Shaping – Your Church’s Future”
October 5, 2022
10:00 AM – 4:00 PM via Zoom
This event is intended to enrich the lives of all clergy,
as well as lay leaders and anyone involved with church planning.
In this time of rapid change, it’s hard to imagine what a church will be like even one year in the future. Gone are the days when church planning was a matter of deciding which of the standard areas of church life to emphasize. How can we plan when so much is in flux? One good way to focus planning is by asking questions. Dan will share a four-step process for asking questions to predict the future.
Dan Hotchkiss has consulted with a wide spectrum of churches, synagogues, and other organizations spanning 33 denominational families. Through his coaching, teaching, and writing, Dan has touched the lives of an even wider range of leaders. His focus is to help organizations engage their constituents in discerning what their mission calls for at a given time, and to empower leaders to act boldly and creatively.
Dan coaches leaders and consults selectively with congregations and other mission-driven groups, mostly by phone and videoconference, from his home near Boston. Prior to consulting independently, Dan served as a Unitarian Universalist parish minister, denominational executive, and senior consultant for the Alban Institute.
Dan Hotchkiss will share a four-step process to help you predict the future of your church: How to Case a Church (current facts), How to Predict Our Future (strategic choices for growth), How to Choose Strategies (role clarification), and How to Make Things Happen (creating a different tomorrow).
Dan’s best-selling Alban book Governance and Ministry: Rethinking Board Leadership, now in an expanded and revised second edition, has helped hundreds of churches, synagogues, and non-profit organizations to streamline their structure and become more mission-focused and effective.
