Resources for Leadership Teams


Our Story: Documenting the Process

The journeys of the churches participating with Belmont University through Project Thrive are building a collective story to answer: “What does it mean to be a thriving congregation and how do churches transition to a thriving church culture?” Over the following years, Project Thrive will require each Leadership Team to document their congregational process.

This is the Documentation Template for leadership teams to use: Click here to download Documentation Guidelines.


Future Conversation Documentation due by Oct. 1st, 2021

Know more about the importance of Documentations:

Documenting the Process

Leadership teams are required to submit documentation for key conversations throughout the year. Find more information and Documenting Guidelines here.

Future Conversations

Your congregational coach will help your leadership team and congregation to answer: "What is our God-Sized Dream?" You will have conversations that engage the imagination and relate to the 7 Thriving Traits.

Writing Initiatives Retreats

Congregational coaches may meet with leadership teams to create initiatives revolving around your God-Sized Dreams. The initiatives will focus on 3-5 Thriving Traits to set your congregational goals for the upcoming year.

Prep the Congregation

The Leadership Teams will create a clear plan/blueprint for implementation of the goals (church approval, committee/team enlistment, work flow, etc.)Leadership teams will communicate the Project Thrive goals to the congregation.

Congregational coaches will be available to support this process.
