Christian institutions, congregations and broader systems regularly identify and grapple with a critically important challenge that is overwhelmingly complex. Addressing this challenge will extend Christian witness and strengthen institutions, but leaders are often perplexed about how and where to begin to develop a productive response.
Generative Solutions is a “learning while working” process that focuses on learning to define problems; mobilize key stakeholders across institutions; conduct research; think strategically; and experiment, evaluate and experiment again. The purpose will be to build the leadership capacity of the participating institutions; increase collaboration across networks; and develop a sustainable set of initiatives to address a vexing challenge.
Each Generative Solutions engagement focuses on a cluster of institutions that shares a common community, tradition and/or mission. That could include institutions and congregations affiliated with a denomination at a national, regional or district level. Or it could be a group of church and community institutions that are located in the same region.
