  4. EVENT vs. PROCESS Encourages decisions Encourages development Motivates people Matures people Is a calendar issue Is a consistency issue Usually about a big group Usually about a small group

  5. EVENT vs. PROCESS Challenges people Changes people Becomes a catalyst Becomes a culture Is easy Is difficult

  6. “In our ministry, we’ve placed far too much emphasis on events and far too little emphasis on process. Both are necessary, • but we frequently neglect • the power of process.” • Tim Elmore, Leveraging Your Influence

  7. Plan no more events without an accompanying process • Activities are not • about doing activities. • Chapel is not about doing chapel. • All should be part of the process!

  8. PROCESSING Discussion or reflection upon an experience; should always follow event! PROCESS A global plan for change Includes events, processing, etc.
