Advancing Collaboration In Global Christian Mission

The vision of the Synergy Commons is to become a global learning community for Christian leaders who want to build effective missional networks in their ministry fields.

In the past generation, a new model of ministry leadership has emerged – uniquely suited to our increasingly interconnected world.

The “celebrity leadership” model has gone.

The “collaborative leadership” model has come.

Collaborative leaders see the world differently. They see networks and synergies, not organizations and limitations.

Collaborative leadership is not just about effective teamwork. It is about working across boundaries – across ministries, agencies, and organizations – to accomplish goals, solve problems, and realize dreams beyond the capacity of any individual.

Collaborative leadership has become a focal theme in secular management, education, and research. Yet collaborative leaders in Christian contexts have had few places to go for connections, resources, and further development in the specific skill-sets needed to lead missional teams, partnerships, and networks.

Until now.
