Commitment to InnovationLab
Churches must be currently engaged in generosity ministry with at least one staff member dedicated to the leadership and oversight of the ministry. This need not be the only staff member's responsibility, i.e. your executive pastor or small groups pastor may also be the primary person responsible for generosity. • Churches must anticipate and be committed to an environment of innovation and experimentation of new ideas of approach and structure, during the 12 month learning program. • Senior Pastor, Lead Pastor or Executive Pastor will be required to be a part of the 3 member InnovationLab team. • Churches must sign an agreement with Leadership Network to fully participate in a 12 month process that will include research and formulation of new ministry approaches. Full participation includes attendance of a 3 person team at the December 1-2, 2014 and December 3-4, 2015 meetings in Dallas, TX, and full participation in the online meeting May 14, 2015 (no travel required for the online meeting). • Churches must also agree to the publication of ideas and models for other churches to replicate. • In the event a church breaks its agreement with Leadership Network and chooses early withdrawal from the program, the $4,000 registration fee is non-refundable.
