The development of healthy church teams and engaging church gatherings is a central focus of conscientious church leaders.

“You can’t just roll in and think you’re going to do church,” says Mike Kai, senior pastor of the Hawaii-based multisite Inspire Church.

Some may find it anathema to even talk about creating an atmosphere, but the reality is that environment and culture are inescapable. The only real questions are what kind of environment and culture do we have, and what are we doing to cultivate more health in those areas?

Mike is convinced that we can see people engaged and transformed by the intentional development of empowering environments. During this Training Session at Foursquare Connection 2016 in Honolulu, he delivered insights and ideas that you can begin implementing today, from the prerequisite of intercessory prayer to the need for team unity and a culture of honor.

Wherever you are called and whoever you are called to reach, this one-hour teaching with Q+A will help you pursue all that you and your ministry are meant to be.
