Thanks to Lewis Center for Church Leadership for sharing this Great Idea from member congregation, Judson Church’s pastor Travis Norvell.

Norvell “describes the blessing and insight that flowed from his decision to schedule 110 one-on-one conversations with neighbors and community leaders. The result was ministry more focus on what people actually need and want instead of what the church thinks they need and want.”

The article outlines how Norvell determined with whom he should have the conversations, the four key questions he employed, and some of the insights and new possibilities he gleaned.

The full article is How One-to-One Conversations Reintroduced a Church to Its Neighbors; find more in Norvell’s Church on the Move: A Practical Guide for Ministry in the Community (Judson).
