Reimagining Church: Economic/Entrepreneurial Possibility

Friday, 12:00pm | Workshop

Part talk and part group interaction, this presentation will encourage small groups from churches or communities to come together to dig deep into the ways in which they can look at their neighborhood/church narrative and begin to frame what a gift-based economy might look like for their facilities. What kind of entrepreneurial development is most needed in their community and is their facility one that could change lives? What kind of space planning is needed? Who are the “gate keepers” that might cause challenges? The attendees will walk away with worksheets for “next steps” after having engaged in frank talk about money and economic partnership justice work.

Anna Golladay

Anna thrives on curating creative & entrepreneurial possibility via Work of Place and Faithmarks. She is a United Methodist pastor, a creative ninja, entrepreneurial to the core and sarcastic to a fault. Via Work of Place, she helps urban churches understand how their underutilized facilities can work alongside burgeoning entrepreneurs, often lacking in resource and financing, with the intent of sparking both neighborhood revitalization and an increase in ideators who change their communities. She is also the curator and founder of Faithmarks, a photographic art exhibit that showcases the spiritual stories behind tattoos. With storytelling at the heart of this traveling show, Anna invites our stories to provide the creative foundation for the new Kingdom that is needed, not to bind us to the mold of the one that birthed us.
