Topic: Appreciative Inquiry – Assets and Blessings
This asset discovery module takes the recent SPIRE session on Appreciative Inquiry from theory into practice. Drawing from the best in the field, our Minister of Faith in Action will give you a step-by-step approach to flipping the script from “There’s not enough!” to “Look at all this!” We begin with a brief introduction to AI to make this a stand-alone session. We then zoom in on the discovery phase of the Appreciative Inquiry process and leave you with lots of resources for doing it with your congregation.
