Faith-based organizations and networks are sometimes known for what we’re against—and all too often that includes being against each other. But amid growing distrust of institutions and organizations, we have a unique opportunity to link arms across organizational boundaries and pursue a calling and a vision higher than our own agendas.
In this webinar, Peter Greer, the author of the book Rooting for Rivals, explores case studies illustrating the power of collaborative partnership and shares failures and successes in pursuing the power of open handed leadership. In a world that competes for resources and status, learn how your multi-organization network or partnership can multiply and strengthen its impact through Kingdom collaboration.
