How are 21st Century Christ-followers in congregations responding to the Shifts around us? We observe a variety of responses, some more optimistic, proactive, Christ-focused, and healthy than others. After describing our Postmodern Context, the Shift Learning Experience describes three major movements congregations are making which lead to life and missional progress.

Contexting: Transitioning From The Modern To The Postmodern Era
Member Identity To Disciple Identity
Attractional Church To Missional Church
Consumer Church To Sacred Partnering

Clergy and Church Staff from every denomination are welcome!
Thanks to our denominational partners for helping with Lunch:

Lead Pastor Cohorts
These are groups of 8-10 lead pastors from various Christian denominations who gather for learning, spiritual enrichment and coaching during the academic year: September - May.  Mark Tidsworth has been leading these experiences since 2005. As these cohorts gather one day per month, they engage a seminar in the morning, eat lunch together, followed by a coaching group. The seminar is typically ongoing learning about pastoral leadership. This year's cohorts are meeting:
     -Columbia, SC,  2nd Monday each month, 9:45AM-3PM, St Andrews Baptist Church
     -Greenville, SC, 2nd Thursday each month, 9:45AM-3PM, Eastminster Presbyterian Church
     -Fort Mill, SC, 3rd Monday each month, 9:45AM-3PM, Unity Presbyterian Church
To explore joining a cohort or establishing a cohort in your area, contact Mark Tidsworth at markt@pinnlead.com
