THE CHURCH OF THE FUTURE
ELS 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.
HOW VIRTUAL ROUNDTABLES WORK (FAQs)
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.
Virtual Roundtables will last for six months, meeting virtually once per month for two hours.
Each Virtual Roundtable investment is $250 per month.
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.
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.

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.
