Strengths Workshops for Churches

Local churches are ideal environments for cultivating strengths-based cultures of people development. We believe God’s amazing workmanship is revealed in each person as they discover, develop, and use their strengths in the world. Consequently, we prioritize opportunities to partner with churches and Christian organizations seeking to implement the strengths paradigm in their leadership structures and people development systems.

Popular Workshop Topics

  • Cultivating Strengths-Based Leadership Teams provides tools and strategies for Christian leadership teams to better work together and identify personal and team growth plans.
  • Strengths Coaching for Ministry Deployment offers a framework and tools for helping ministry team leaders identify and develop team members’ talents and gifts for service. This topic is also useful for “New Members” classes by providing both the participants and church leadership important information about the talents and strengths of new members.
  • Strengths Training for Community Engagement equips participants with strategies and resources for using the “Strengths Philosophy” as a bridge to the wider community. Because Gallup’s strengths philosophy and the CliftonStrengths assessment are grounded in humanistic psychological and sociological research, churches can host “Strengths Discovery Workshops” as a means to serve, resource, and bless their local communities.
