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?

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

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.

HERE'S WHAT CHURCH LEADERS ARE SAYING ...

"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, Season Huff, Scott Connor, Glenn 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 wisdom in each meeting. At times, I feel like a kid in a candy shop as learn from these amazing leaders."

"My online cohort and coaching with Kyle has been a needed breath of fresh air. Our group is filled with authenticity, vulnerability, innovation, and support. Kyle has a wealth of knowledge and not afraid to share his failures as well as his wins. He cares about each one of us individually and wants to help us all succeed in our own situation."
