You are invited to join this weekly gathering designed to provide encouragement and support for ELCA leaders across the church and throughout society. Participants will hear topical presentations related to how we are called to be Church in the time of COVID-19, as well as an opportunity to be in small group discussions with an ELCA group coach facilitating the conversation. All of this is designed to help us process our feelings in this strange and fearful time and to create a space where we can each name our next most faithful step forward in our unique context.

Our presenter on May 27 will be Dave Daubert, who has been invited by the ELCA to begin collating information around "Best Practices for Re-Entry." Here is some of the information he will be sharing with us: 1) Safe and best practices for regathering, 2) Best practices for processing information and making decisions without gathering, especially as it will help illuminate options and help faith communities process information as they decide what to do, and not do, moving forward, and how to navigate conflict in this arena 3) How to calculate online attendance, and 4) Evangelism in the online world.

Coaching is uniquely designed to be a support tool to help each leader decide what is best for them and their community and to help sort through all of the information to take the next most faithful step. If, for example, that step is to stay physically distanced, this session will also help leaders to have a solid narrative around 'why' and how to navigate that.

Pastor Dave Daubert, DMin, PhD, is a second career pastor whose first career was in engineering. That brings a unique gift set that uses gifts for analysis and design that find their way into his church work as well. Dave has two Master's degrees in ministry, a Doctor of Ministry in Preaching, and a PhD in Theological Studies. He also holds certificates in Non-Profit Management, Coaching, and Spiritual Formation.

Dave's work experience has included parish ministry, serving on a judicatory staff, and work as Director for Renewal of Congregations for the ELCA. In addition to his current work consulting, teaching, writing, and coaching - he currently serves as pastor of Zion Lutheran Church in Elgin, IL.

ELCA Coaching is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting.
