Recruiting and Mobilizing a Mission Force
The Legacy Imperative equips grandparents and other followers of Christ with the tools to pass on biblical values of faith and family to the next generations. The first step in our process is church or organization-sponsored workshops, led by Dr. Bob Petterson, Legacy Imperative founder and president.
Most programs impart information alone. The key Legacy Imperative difference is that our workshops are designed to give your congregants and members the inspirational vision and tools to reach and transform their children and grandchildren — the natives of Digital Land.
Innovative. Energizing. Game-Changing Content.
- Changing times. A provocative look at the six generations that share our space. Comparative trends, viewpoints, ways of thinking.
- Hot-buttons. How to bring down the temperature, bridge the generational divide, for effective discussions of hot-button issues.
- The brave new digital world. Learn how to navigate the new digital world and understand the language and communication styles of the young who inhabit it.
- The power of story. Learn how to transmit your story of faith and family to a skeptical, social media generation.
- The endgame. Effectively evangelizing and discipling the next generations so that they can do the same in their world.
- The goal: Make better kids for a better America.
A Powerful Multimedia Format
In most cases, our workshops, which are broken into ten 30-minute sessions with intervening break-out sessions, take place on a Friday evening, from 6:30 to 9 p.m., and Saturday from 8:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. However, depending on the workshops option you select, the sessions can be scheduled and/or spaced out to meet your individual requirements.
Dr. Bob Petterson, riveting speaker, best-selling author and pastor, leads the workshops. He imbues each session with inspirational teaching, media and film clips, and interaction to impart content in a spellbinding and entertaining way.
Three Flexible Workshops Options to Fit Your Requirements.
Legacy Imperative workshops are designed to support your cultural, doctrinal and size requirements, and are available in the following configurations:
In-person, single venue and/or livestream to satellite churches, or a combination of neighboring community churches. Dr. Petterson leads and facilitates the workshops.
Cost: $5,000. Includes speaker fee, travel and per diem costs, set-up instructions and marketing templates, mission group leader training and participant downloadable manuals, and up to 100 books shipped to a single address. For larger groups, additional books are available at an extra cost. Host church will provide transportation to/from airport and housing.
Virtual, off-site. Dr. Petterson remotely facilitates each session and Q&A periods.
Cost: $3,000. Includes set-up instructions and marketing templates, mission group leader training and participant downloadable manuals, and up to 50 books shipped to a single address. Additional books available at an extra cost.
Option 3 — Coming This Fall!
Pre-recorded workshops. 10 pre-recorded sessions, to be scheduled within a 24-month time period. Optional: Dr. Bob would be available for a pre-scheduled, livestream introduction or other pre-scheduled presentation.
Cost: $750. Includes set-up instructions and marketing templates, mission group leader training and participant downloadable manuals, and up to 10 books shipped to a single address. Additional books available at an extra cost.
In order to accommodate your costs, we typically recommend a $50 per person charge for the workshops. You may elect to cover all or a portion of this fee. This flexibility enables you to cover any added costs incurred for the workshop, i.e. meals, tablets, etc., or to utilize the additional funds generated from higher-than-anticipated attendance for other church ministries.
Please note: We understand that each church is in a different financial position and we will be happy to work with you to make our fee appropriate to your circumstances.
Mission Training Groups
Developing Missionaries to Digital Land!
Like all missionary training, those who attend our workshops have the option of making a covenant to continue their mission and acquire the skills to effectively evangelize and disciple their children and grandchildren.
At the completion of the workshops, everyone is invited to join a 10-week Mission Training Group to learn and practice effective missionary skills, and receive the tools to share their personal stories and faith with the next generations. At the end of the training period, they will become “Commissioned Missionaries,” prepared to reach Digital Land and disciple the natives — their children and grandchildren. Like the workshops, Mission Training Groups can be in-person or virtual.
Legacy Imperative provides all the materials and training on how to conduct and set up in-person or virtual groups. Leaders will be directed to a downloadable facilitator’s handbook and brief, easy-to-follow training videos. Participants are provided with a downloadable manual. NOTE: If your church already has a structured small group system, Legacy Imperative training materials can be incorporated into the curriculum.
Motivation, Sharing, and Updated Tools to Accomplish the Mission.
Legacy Imperative is founded on the principle that the most precious skills are developed and nurtured over time. Thus, another key Legacy Imperative differentiator is our program structure, which is designed to maintain participant enthusiasm and commitment to discipling over time. After the 10-week mission training period, participants are encouraged to join a Sustaining Group to share discipling successes and experiences, practice effective missionary skills and receive updated materials.
Our website, www.LegacyImperative.org also offers a continuously updated Toolbox with books, films, videos, blogs, podcasts, Bible study, intergenerational tours, and more. It links to our Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and other social media accounts to maintain enthusiasm and commitment.
