Adoption: A family on mission
We spend a lot of time talking about how to develop a Family on Mission. But what does it look like when the family becomes the mission? Join Kim and Dave Rhodes in this webinar as they talk about their journey of Adoption as a Family on Mission and how the mission of Adoption might have a great impact not just on our world but on your family in particular. This webinar will address questions like:
What did the process look like?
How did they discern the call to adopt?
How did the adoption impact their other kids?
What about those who feel called to adopt but canâ€™t afford it?
Is adoption is a calling for a few? Or for many believers?

How to lead up!
From time to time we meet church leaders who feel conviction about the need to embrace a more discipling and missional way of being the church, but who are on staff at large organizations where they are not in senior leadership. In these instances the challenge can be to influence the culture of the church while honoring the leaders who have the primary hand in shaping it.
These people often ask, â€œHow do I lead up?â€ In this one-hour webinar, we will cover strategies that will allow you to be faithful to what the Lord is saying, while honoring the context in which you serve.

Kids and Missional Community Life.
As missional communities are built on the idea of â€œoikosâ€ or â€œextended familyâ€ â€” itâ€™s important to think through the role of children in family life. Weâ€™re often asked what MCs look like for children as their parents engage in oikos life and learn to lead families on mission. Wanting more for kids than play time in a separate room, thiswebinar will teach you how to help kids have their own MC experience, detailing models for leadership and resources.
Monday July 23, 8:30-9:30pm â€” Mike + Sally Breen

Financial Models for Church Planters Using MCs and Huddles
Many church planters feel the pull of an attractional approach simply because itâ€™s a model that seems more likely toattract established Christians who are willing to tithe. In this one-hour webinar, weâ€™ll cover ways to approach tithes and offerings in a more decentralized mode of planting, as well as other economic models for funding a missional church.
Wednesday August 1, 2:30-3:30pm EST â€” Doug Paul
How to lead a group of â€œdevelopersâ€ towards the missional frontier?
Many church leaders have clarity on the missional frontier God is calling them to take, yet find themselves with more â€œdevelopersâ€ than â€œpioneersâ€ in their congregational context. How does an apostle effectively rally Godâ€™s people to take a new frontier when the comfort of the old world seems so attractive?
In this one-hour webinar, weâ€™ll share principles and practices for better communicating and motivating the developers in your ministry, tools that will help you effectively challenge them to live into the covenant and calling for which God has created them.

Business 3 â€” Lead for a Change: Learn to influence others in way, which empowers and inspires.
Sadly, if youâ€™re not intentional in your Leadership â€” youâ€™ll simply lead everyone the way you prefer to be lead and the people youâ€™re leading arenâ€™t you. Thereâ€™s a better way. This webinar unpacks intentional leadership strategies. Weâ€™ll outline how to get and keep people in the â€œempowered quadrantâ€ and what changes to your leadership you might have to make to get (and keep) them there.

Going from spiritual growth to spiritual reproduction.
Jim Collins coined the idea that often the good is the enemy of the great. In settling for the good that we know, we fall short of a better reality we donâ€™t yet know. So, we do thingswell. We see good results. But the results, while good, are also limitedâ€”limited by the leaderâ€™s inability to be in more than one place at one time. But what if that different world could be great? What if instead of creating a culture of good spiritual growth, we could learn to create a culture of great spiritual impactâ€”impact not directly determined by the presence of the senior leader. Creating a culture of spiritual reproduction makes this kind of culture not just possible but a probable.
Join the 3DM team in this informative and challenging webinar as we begin to imagine how to create cultures of unlimited kingdom impact by resetting the bar of what a normal church culture might look like.
Thursday August 16 3-4pm EST â€” Dave Rhodes + Doug Paul
