DISCIPLESHIP. LEADERSHIP. CHURCH PLANTING.
What is the Creating Forward Movement (CFM) initiative?
In response to the continuing numerical decline in the numbers of healthy churches, Churches of Christ Qld are partnering with ConneXa to catalyse growth in church planting, leadership and spiritual formation.
In a wide-reaching and integrated strategy, we will work with existing and emerging leaders to:
Create effective formation culture within their churches.
Develop a leadership incubator for a new generation of leaders and planters.
Adopt a regional approach to "church", assessing where new churches might be positioned or where existing churches can work together to increase viabiity and health.
Leaders are invited to opt-in to the various offerings.
Upcoming CFM initiatives:

Between workshops, monthly zoom support sessions will be held for support and coaching. This is a customised process for CofCQ to equip our own team of coaches who will replicate the process for a second cohort beginning July 2024 (with Workshop 1) while the initial cohort then undertakes Workshop 2.
Detail of costs and dates will come closer to the date, but will be in the realm of $200 for the two days (inc. M/tea and Lunch) with participants paying for their own accommodation as required.
