by | Mar 15, 2022 | East District Newsletter, South District Newsletter

The Lewis Center for Church Leadership recently published the article “How One-to-One Conversations Reintroduced a Church to its Neighbors by Travis Norvell.

Travis Norvell, pastor of Judson Church in Minneapolis, describes the blessing and insight that flowed from his decision to schedule 110 one-on-one conversations with neighbors and community leaders. The result was ministry more focused on what people actually need and want instead of what the church thinks they need and want.
