Design your year.
Transform your ministry.
Let’s do it together.

January 5-7, 2022 in Atlanta, GA

Move your mission forward in 2022

through a collaborative workshop using our paradigm-shifting toolsets

  • Network Leaders
  • Pastors
  • Church Staff
  • Disciple-Makers
  • Coaches
  • Consultants

Are you fully living out your specific kingdom calling?

At Future Church, Co., we hear from leaders all of the time who say:

  • “I spend more time managing programs than training disciples.”
  • “Our attendance and giving haven’t bounced back past-Covid. I’m exhausted and don’t know what to do.”
  • “With everything going on in my ministry right now, I’m afraid I’m going to lose my fire for the gospel.”

Is this how it has to be?

Will your people fail to connect with Jesus beyond weekly services or the occasional livestream?

Is your only alternative “copy and paste” advice that may not apply to your context?

There is a better way.

It’s time to fall in love with ministry again.

The Future Church Collective is not another conference. It’s a collaborative experience.

You’ll work with Will Mancini, Kelly Kannwischer, Dave Rhodes, Jay Kranda, and others as you plan to:

  • Unleash a Jesus movement right where you are.
  • See more people follow Jesus in 2022.
  • Empower your people to live their callings 24/7.

Join other leaders as you design 2022 according to your movement’s specific calling.

Plan strategically using our three distinct toolboxes.
And we have have tracks available for people both new and experienced with our toolsets.

Here’s what people are saying about Future Church Co.

After decades of growing a very large church using best practices, we engaged Will Mancini and his team to create a visionary plan based on our unique strengths. The results have been tremendous for me as a leader, for our staff team collectively and for each member; our mission has really moved from ‘what the church does’ to ‘what each member lives.’

Ken Whitten, Senior Pastor
Idlewild Baptist Church

Will Mancini is leading my colleagues and me on an adventure of discovery, exploring our denomination’s deep identity and current calling. Along the path, we have uncovered parts of our story that we’re not proud of, but Will’s gifts and skill help us to laugh where we can and dream together of recapturing the dynamism and daring that will honor God. Denominee’s approach blends spiritual sensitivity with professional expertise, based on a wide range of resources. We’re loving the journey!

Linda Adams, Bishop
Free Methodist Church

It’s a joy just to watch how individuals are all walking this journey of spiritual formation and being formed more into the image of Christ. And to know that Elizabeth Baptist Church has had some degree or a part to play in that process is the greatest joy. Future Church is helping our ministry to mobilize us towards making more disciples.

Dr. Craig Oliver, Lead Pastor
Elizabeth Baptist Church

To see people know and name their life’s calling from God is a privilege unparalleled and a force being released that will change the world.

Joshua Toepper,
Grace Fellowship

What is a Collective?

The Future Church collective is a three-day, tool-based, collaborative workshop where church leaders at every level can spend time designing 2022 according to their movement’s God-ordained calling.

This is not “copy and paste” ministry advice. Instead, we’ll train you to use our tools to reveal your unique vision and strategies for the future.

No keynotes. No vendors. Let’s get to work on designing your better future together.

Inspiration: Use the Collective to launch 2022 inspired for ministry. The future is still being discovered. Take this time to hear from God and lean into a vision that will energize you and your people for the next year.

A Best Next Step: Whether you are new to our tools or have been wrestling with clarity processes for years, we’ve designed our time together so that each person will have the chance to experience a breakthrough moment. This is not “copy and paste” ministry advice. Instead, we’ll train you to use our tools to reveal your mission’s unique calling. Come curious and expectant!

Tools for Leadership: Evaluation and sharpening are habits of all good leaders. We have curated specific tools to facilitate perspective and insight. We want you to get that next step of clarity today that is executable tomorrow.

Encouragement and Hope: Learn more by hearing and seeing what others are doing. Be encouraged that Jesus is dedicated to building his church. And gain hope from knowing we are not alone in this journey.

Each day will begin together with prayer and a biblical framework for the day.
We will meet in large rooms with participants seated around round tables for opportunities to work with our paradigm-shifting tools and engage in strategic conversations. Teams can choose to be seated together for the duration of the Collective for collaboration or scattered throughout the room for strategic cross-pollination. If you bring your team, please let us know your preference.

Afternoon sessions are designed with two different tracks. One track is for those new to the three unique toolkits we created to address three specific ministry areas: denominations (Denominee), churches (Pivvot), and discipleship (Younique). The second track is for existing users of our tools who want to engage in custom conversations to go further and gain new breakthroughs. We will host conversations and introduce new tools to help you make progress and learn from the best practices of others who are also sharing the journey.

The Atlanta airport is a major airline hub with a great selection of flights. Book early for the best fares.

Buckhead, the suburb where Peachtree is located, is about 25 minutes north of the Atlanta Airport and up to an hour if traffic is heavy. Please allow for travel time when planning your flight times.

From the Atlanta airport, you can take the MARTA train to the Buckhead station. The standard fare is $2.50. There is a MARTA station inside the airport, easy to access. From the Buckhead station you can Uber to your hotel or the meeting venue.

You can also Uber from the airport to the meeting venue. Rates vary from $45 – $100 depending on time of day and demand.

Check with your hotel to determine if you need a rental car. Several of the hotels provide a free shuttle service to the meeting venue and some are within walking distance.
