How can you build an engagement strategy you can be proud of?

Over the last decade, I’ve developed a system for creating lasting engagement, and I want to share that with you. If you’ve felt like the skills you were taught in seminary left you behind, you don’t want to miss this. 

I’ve developed the “Art of Engagement“–it’s a free course on Gloo that covers the 7 engagement hacks I use every day. 

In the course, you’ll learn why you need to understand the unique psychology of your community, and how to use that knowledge to keep people coming back. 

So if you want to get rid of low engagement and join other pastors who are winning the fight for hearts and minds, go to get.gloo.us/artofengagement to create your free account on Gloo and get access to the course.

It takes less than 30 seconds to sign up and access resources that could change the future of your congregation.

Convoy of Hope

My friends in the U.S. told me that September is National Preparedness Month… So if you don’t have a family plan in case of an emergency, I’d encourage you to talk about that when you have a chance!

But, during times of disaster, I am thankful for organizations like Convoy of Hope that help families and communities who have been hit hardest.

Already this year, they’ve responded to dozens of disasters — most of which never hit the news cycle — providing immediate relief supplies like food, water, and hygiene kits.

If you’d like to learn more about Convoy of Hope or support their ability to immediately respond to global crises such as fires, hurricanes, earthquakes, extreme drought, and more, check out convoy.org/carey.

Lead With Confidence and Clarity. Grow Your Church.

As leaders, we tend to see the challenges and roadblocks before other people do.

We've all been there before...

  • You need to refresh your vision for the future but know that change will be an issue for that person.
  • You're overstaffed (or missing a key role) and can't find the right person to fill the role.
  • You aren't reaching enough new people even though you've tried everything that's working for other churches.
  • You can see the issue but aren't confident in what to do about it.

And with another Sunday morning coming up, it'll just have to wait until next week when you have a few minutes to figure it out.

Now ask yourself this:

What would it feel like to have those answers at your fingertips 24/7?

Whether it's reaching new people, improving your preaching, increasing volunteers, refreshing your vision, engaging your staff, or any of the countless challenges we face as church leaders, The Art of Leadership Academy will equip you to lead your church with confidence and clarity.

Between comprehensive church leadership courses, live coaching calls, staff and volunteer training resources, and direct access to a private online community of senior-level church leaders, you'll get the exact insights and answers that fuel your church for growth.
