Executive Pastor Virtual Roundtable

With Darin Yates

The Church of the Future

Ministry Solutions Group exists to equip executive leaders for the church of the future. We do that by connecting leaders to each other and to the best thought leaders available in ministry and business.

THE WHY
We believe that real change happens in meaningful relationships and through intentional processes. Executive leaders are carrying a heavier weight of change and implementation than 
ever before, and we simply believe that you shouldn’t have to do that alone.

THE HOW
Our Virtual Roundtables are curated environments with 5-8 executive leaders, organized by relevant topics (digital, finance, etc.), organizational size, number of campuses, and common objectives. The groups will be led by a mentor who has 20+ years of ministry experience at larger, more complex organizations.

THE GOAL
The main goal is for you to have an opportunity to share where you want to go as a leader and as an organization, your greatest opportunities, as well as your biggest challenges, and to have a team of peers, a mentor, and a company behind you to help you achieve that vision.

How Virtual Roundtables Work (FAQs)

What are Virtual Roundtables?
Virtual Roundtables are peer-driven environments of 5-8 people, facilitated by a group mentor, where executive leaders can come to challenge ideas, develop skills, and lead with better clarity.
What is the time commitment and financial investment for joining a Virtual Roundtable?

Virtual Roundtables will last for six months, meeting virtually once per month for two hours.

Each Virtual Roundtable investment is $250 per month. 

How do Virtual Roundtables work?

Virtual Roundtables are intentionally small for increased collaboration and one-to-one communication opportunities with the mentor. We will ask each group member to submit their challenge/question/need one week before the group meets. This allows the mentor and other members a chance to research topics for discussion. As appropriate, topic experts may also be invited to speak to the issue when the group meets.

 
Who are the mentors?

Our mentors are seasoned executives from larger churches, who also have the humility to serve and a heart for the local church leadership. Mentors will be selected for each group based on who is in the group. 

 
Can I invite people I know into a Virtual Roundtable?

Yes, as long as it is before the group starts. Just send us an email and let us know who! 

What is the level of confidentiality?

We believe relational safety is imperative, and this cannot be achieved without confidentiality. We want leaders to show up with their real issues and find support without any concern of having conversations shared outside the group. Everyone who participates will be required to commit to 100% confidentiality.

What topics will be covered?

This will be determined by the group, but some examples are tracking church engagement, budget/finances, staffing/benefits, future church innovation, digital engagement, and building use strategy.

Online/ Young Adults Pastor, Jacob’s Well Church

Glenn gave us the opportunity to give feedback from the group that I am involved with. I have been blessed to be in a group with Dan Vander Wall, Sean Huff, Scott Conor, Glen Wood (host) and Nathan for the past 6 months and looking forward to continuing our time together. It truly is one of my favorite meetings of the month. I gain so much insight and meeting in each meeting. At times I feel like a kid in a candy store as I learn from these amazing leaders.

Executive Pastor, Cross Point Church

Vivienne was a wonderful leader, and I would highly recommend her mentoring and training. I really enjoyed getting the perspective from a variety of voices. Represented were different-sized teams, different areas of focus, and varied personalities and experiences. It was interesting to see common struggles among us all and encouraging to walk through a unique struggle with someone else.
