Coming Soon! Meetup Event: Process Design for Ministry

With the New Year right around the corner, we’re thrilled to share that we’re hosting another  Meetup Event!  We hope you’ll join us for a discussion on Process Design in Ministries and Churches.  What gets people in the door?  What does their journey look like from one point to another?  How do you ensure a good experience?  We’ll be covering these questions and many more.

We hope to share best practices for ministry leadership and discuss relevant tools and resources.   All are welcome, so please be sure to come check it out and share your knowledge (and enjoy free refreshments)!

Nice to MEET You.

Yesterday we hosted our second Meetup Event!  Thanks so much to all who were able to join us.  We had a great evening of discussion centered around the topic of Simon Sinek’s Golden Circle – “The naturally occurring pattern that explains how great leaders inspire others” and how to ensure effective leadership within small groups and ministries.

Our mission and passion here at Goodberry is to help Christians be disciples and to outfit churches with resources and tools to help raise disciples.  In addition, we also strive to create a community which allows people to connect, learn, support, and grow with others in a journey of discipleship.  This Meetup Event was a perfect medium to begin establishing a group here in our local community.

Our discussion generated a lot more questions of how we can not only get folks on board with the WHY behind our ministries and organizations, but also HOW.  We’d love for future Meetup Events to focus on effective leadership methodologies. We hope to feature speakers that have embodied the mission of their ministries and providing excellent maps – allowing others to get from point A to point B.

The next Meetup Event will be taking place on January 9th – Be sure to keep an eye out for more details.  We hope to see you there!

A new old idea: getting together

We’re a digital bunch. We bring web-powered magic to people all around the country so they can access resources they might not have been able to otherwise. Yet, in the midst of all of eBooks, pixels, and lines of code, we can’t help but feel there’s a “real life” component that would make it all that much better. So, today we’re launching Goodberry Meetups. It’s a time to come together (in person!) share stories of discipleship, insights on useful resources, and most of all, encourage each other. And, for our part, we’ll help facilitate the discussion with free pie and coffee. (What’s a get-together without good food?) Our first meetup will be here in Grand Rapids, but if you’re interested in starting something in your town, let us know! If you ARE here in GR, stop by:

You’re Invited: Thursday, June 6, 2013 at the Grand Traverse Pie Co.

Join us for our first Goodberry Meetup to share best practices, your favorite small group / bible study resources and stories about how God is moving within your small groups while enjoying free pie and coffee.

Who else will be there?

Small Group Attendees, Small Group Leaders & Facilitators/Coordinators, Bible Study Leaders/Teachers, Pastors & Church Leaders
