One thing I appreciated about the Compassion Group was the willingness to struggle with complex issues. Not only did we grapple with a more developed sense of poverty – relational, spiritual, and economic – but also with complex solutions. The benefit has been a fresh evaluation of our ministry practices and metrics. It was helpful to get to know the other pastors and their struggles with these issues and to visit FCS Ministries and see in practice the approaches we discussed.  My hope is that I leave this experience asking better questions and having more discerning eyes to evaluate our processes of service and exchange.  As an outreach pastor, this is invaluable.

Pastor Doug Rowland, Pastor at Outreach Ministries & Attendee of Compassion Workshop

My time with the Made to Flourish Preaching Virtual Workshop has been personally enriching. I have enjoyed engaging a group of leaders who seek to disassemble the walls of false understanding often erected between sacred and secular work.  These leaders are helping their congregants realize that everything they do, including their work, is part of God’s call. Programs like these are vital for our spiritual leaders. It provides them a space to learn and fellowship with other leaders and it helps them forge a common purpose together.

Dr. John Byron, Professor at Ashland Theological Seminary & Leader of Preaching Workshop

The Compassion Group with Bob Lupton helped me organize my thoughts and challenge my assumptions about effective compassionate outreach. An online forum is a helpful way to gain new ideas for ministry.
