We will host a nationally broadcasted conference, Common Good 2019: A Church for Monday. The event will be from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Christian Life Center (2552 135th st. Blue Island IL)
This is a great event to help you build momentum and vision for faith and work integration at your church. We encourage you to bring others from your church to be inspired by these national speakers, as well to hear from other Chicagoland church leaders to learn how they are leading their congregations toward becoming a church for Monday
The conference will address themes like:
* How are other Chicagoland churches equipping for faith and work integration?
* How can I understand a sense of God’s calling wherever I work?
* How do I follow Jesus at work in a post-Christian culture?
* How can we as the church multiply opportunity for all (especially the vulnerable)?
* How do we be champions of human dignity in our work?
* How can the church be a faithful presence in our communities?
The speakers include a mix of pastors and local speakers (Bryan Loritts, Larry Osborne, Tom Nelson), business leaders and entrepreneurs (Helen Hayes, Thomas Kim, Winnette Mcintosh, Robin John), and scholars (Karen Ellis).

Transformational Leadership and Organizations: Strategic Planning, Practical Tools, and Wisdom for the Flourishing of Leaders and Organizations.
Leadership is an inward journey that can lead to the transformation of culture, organizations, and cities. It takes tremendous courage to lead. It also takes strategy. Join us as we take a journey inward that will make us better leaders - leading better organizations.
What it's All About:
The ability to build a healthy team is fast becoming an advantage, especially in the region that we live in. Too often dysfunction, confusion and politics prevent even the most brilliant strategies from realizing their full potential. Organizational effectiveness and team dynamics are at the root of many problems and it’s time that the Church step up to be one of the leaders in Organizational Health.
This is a rare opportunity for you and your team to be immersed in organizational health. You’ll spend an energizing and thought-provoking morning with Pat Lencioni who has spent the past 20 years shaping the organizational health movement. Participants will learn new concepts and tools to lead their teams towards increased health and effectiveness.Find out more »
