Religious Congregations

CommunityWorks consults with religious women throughout the United States and beyond as a system partner. Our primary work includes:

 

  • Organizational Consultation

  • Transformative Visioning and Strategic Planning

  • Strategic Operational Planning

  • Consultation and facilitation for collaborative planning, forming mergers, or developing covenant relationships

  • Chapter and Assembly facilitation

  • Consultation on space and/or property utilization

  • Leadership development and executive coaching

 

We partner with leadership teams/councils in diverse ways such as:

 

  • Addressing complex issues regarding vitality and viability

  • Building collaborative relationships with the congregation, associates and other key partners

  • Implementing Chapter initiatives through the leadership of the membership

  • Providing leadership development and executive coaching

 

Mergers, Collaborations and Covenant Relationships

For the past 20 years, CommunityWorks has explored and developed new governance structures with religious communities. We have found that congregations who engage in mergers, collaborations, or covenant relationships are most successful when they engage the members, associates, and staff in conversations and processes specific to claiming anew the congregation’s mission, and who strive to look at creative and innovative ways of being in mission. Out of this, the needed structure will emerge.
