Improving Board Effectiveness

There are five types of governance models currently in use in LCMS congregations across the country. No matter which type you currently operate under, there are practical steps your leadership can take to improve congregational governance. Participants will determine if they should change their current governance model or keep what they have, learn best practices for their type of governance, eliminate bad practices, and identify leverage points for healthy change.
