DOING BUSINESS

Fishing Differently invites congregations to explore how they harness the transformative power of their congregational stories, practices and identities to recalibrate their relationship to the changing communities and ecosystems in which they do ministry. Congregations that successfully participate in this exploration will be able to better align their identity, vocation, ministry and facilities with a shared mission.

Conversation Partners

The third step in Fishing Differently is building social capital, which is generated by expanding our social networks to include people who share our passion for social impact. Our conversation partners are committed to helping congregations meet the people they need to know - pastors and impact investors, theologians and social entrepreneurs, and other business and faith leaders.
