This five-session course helps us make sense of the new context in which we of the church find ourselves, provides practical models by which to understand how our congregations need to change, describes a visioning process by which we can discover what God is calling the church to be and do now, and provides practical advice and counsel to those who provide leadership for change.
This is an online course composed of five high-quality video-on-demand sessions and five one-hour fully-interactive sessions with Dr. Hamm. In addition, participants have an online learning community to discuss classes and topics with each other under the supervision of Dr. Hamm. As a bonus, the course includes a sixth video-on-demand session that is a music concert by John Tracy singing songs about change. The full course is conducted over a period of five weeks.
This course is based on Dr. Hamm's book of the same title, TCP Leadership Series, Chalice Press, 2007, supplemented by up to date findings from recent consultation, which is used as the class textbook for the course.
TransformingTheChurch.org is a new online resource for churches and congregations in transformation established to provide access to high-quality online learning, courseware, consultation and coaching processes. Although intended for use by any congregation of any denomination that is in need of systemic transformation and deep change, TransformingTheChurch.org has been founded and led by four members of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ): Roger A. Sizemore, Ph.D., Richard L. (Dick) Hamm, D.Min., Richard H. (Rick) Lowery, Ph.D. and William H. (Bill) Anderton. Furthermore, the project is intended to be a resource aligned with the Disciples' goal of transforming 1,000 congregations by 2020 to realize the 2020 Vision of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ).
