Grassroots Ministry Sustainability

     The Spirit of God has done amazing things through small congregations, but now many are at risk. Demographic changes, cultural changes, the aging of membership, and the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic combine to threaten the very life of the small congregation.

    Our goal is to help the congregation, who might be facing possible closure, to find ways to sustain their ministry and continue their mission. For this, we provide facilitation, consultation, and coaching.

     We consider serving the small congregation to present a unique challenge to the pastoral leader. In collaboration with Wartburg Seminary, our "Engaging God's Future" classes offer specialized training to parish leaders serving these congregations. 

     Your donation to Dialog Works makes all this possible. Thanks you for helping us connect and walk with small congregations facing sustainability issues.
