What Are We Up to in…

….besides fabulous family stuff?

In a nutshell–we have learned so, so, so much. Since our first Ministry Incubators event (a hatchathon) three years ago, we have done a lot of experimenting (and for all of you who were among our first guinea pigs, thank you, and…we’re sorry!)

Here’s what we learned above all: We’re not done experimenting.

So what’s ahead in 2017? Some new experiments!

Online Introductory “Toolkit Courses” for Missional Innovation:  

“My Church Is Brand New to Missional Entrepreneurship: Where Do I Start?”

Our first 5-session online “toolkit course” for congregations and church leaders is still in development, but it will launch in the fall. If you want to be kept in the loop about Toolkit Courses, let us know here.

More Hatchathons

We can only schedule a few of these a year, and 2017 is full. Sometimes we do hatchathons for specific groups, like the one we’re doing at Indiana Wesleyan University in February, and sometimes they’re for the public, like the one at Princeton Seminary on March 29-31. If your group is thinking about sponsoring a hatchathon, talk to us about 2018.

Speaking, consulting, and coaching

We’ve added more coaches and advisors to our team! If you’re interested in receiving coaching, consulting or sponsoring an introductory event for your group (either a half-day or an overnight “collaboratory”), give us a shout here.

Hungry for more? Sign up for our newsletter and stay up to date on our latest blogs and Ministry Incubators news! Or, are you ready to take action? Think about attending a Hatchathon where you can start planning your own venture! Check out the next one happening March 29-31 at Princeton Theological Seminary.
