Building and Leading Diverse and Effective Mobilization Teams

November 14, 2022 @ 3:00 pm - November 16, 2022 @ 12:00 pm CST


God is calling men and women, emerging generations, people of color, and those from a variety of backgrounds to go with mission agencies into the nations. How can mission organizations intentionally build and lead excellent mobilization teams that look like and relate well to this diversity of potential mission candidates? This event will tackle how to develop fruitful, results-oriented mobilization teams. We will explore together how to bring on board, equip, and lead mobilization teams that will find, nurture, and launch the diversity of goers needed for today’s global missions enterprise.

The primary audience for this event is Mobilization Directors and affiliated Mobilization leaders.

Some of the topics to be covered include:

  • How to Fill and Formalize a Diverse Mix of Volunteer and Paid Mobilizers
  • How to Onboard and Train our Mobilizers
  • How to Strengthen and Sustain our Mobilizers with Healthy Rhythms
  • How to Unify and Lead our Mobilization Teams to Work Well Together
