Name the Elephant: Coping With the Biggest Risk to our Mission


In a time of uncertainty, we can maximize our mission’s impact when we lean in and embrace risk. Nationally known speaker, Melanie Lockwood Herman, Esq., teaches how to identify, reflect on and take action on some of the biggest risks to your mission – from the fracture of the denomination to the aging and shrinking of church membership. Thanks to the generosity of the Missouri United Methodist Foundation, all Missouri United Methodist Churches are considered affiliates under the Foundation’s membership in the Nonprofit Risk Management Center, giving our churches access to the center’s resources.
